The Lee County Republican Party has removed Randy Todd from November’s ballot and replaced him with party officer Paula Fine-Mbuangi, the Lee County Board of Elections has confirmed.

The move comes days after Todd, who had been seeking one of three seats on the Lee County Board of Commissioners, was charged with assaulting his stepson. Todd also generated controversy in February when he went on Facebook during the Super Bowl halftime show and compared it to “Mexican burlesque” and saying the performers should “do it in English next time.”

Vernon Robinson, a Republican author and activist in North Carolina, shared a Facebook post on Wednesday in which he appeared with Fine-Mbuangi and identified her as a vice chair for the Lee County Republican Party.
