SAN FRANCISCO, May 21 (UPI) -- Mount Pleasant city clerk Kim Lehmkuhl handed in her resignation via email and used some colorful language to describe her sentiment.

The email to the mayor wished him luck on finding a "schmuck" to take her position.

"This has been an atrocious, incredibly depressing and mind-numbingly inane experience I would not wish on anyone. I wish the city the best of luck in finding some schmuck eager to transcribe every last misogynistic joke, self-indulgent anecdote and pathetic pandering attempt by council, and every tinfoil hat conspiracy theory, racist aside, and NIMBY asshattery from the lovely council meeting frequent flyers, without which, surely our democracy could not flourish."

The letter comes after several council members asked that she resign for tweeting during a council meeting instead of paying attention.

Lehmkuhl quit after she accepted an offer to work in Washington, D.C. with Working America, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO that represents non-union workers.
