Sterling Heights City Councilman Paul Smith told The Macomb Daily (bit.ly/MlrJXk) that some "joker" made a complaint to the Secret Service. He said agents believe he's not a threat after a visit Thursday.
Smith appeared at a tea party rally in 2009 and held anti-Obama signs, including one that said, "One more day is one too many." He also criticized then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
Smith said he has no reason to defend himself three years later.
The Sterling Heights City Council voted 6-1 to ask Smith to resign. Smith says he won't.
