A county jail official in Iowa, US, has been placed on temporary leave after complaints about Islamophobic and anti-gay remarks he made online.

Dean Naylor, administrator of the Muscatine County jail, was placed on temporary leave on April 23 pending an internal investigation, announced Sheriff Ryan.

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors and other groups have called for Naylor’s removal, The Des Moines Register reported. Overflow inmates from Johnson County are housed in Muscatine County.

Naylor is accused of making comments in YouTube videos and an online outburst that include calling Muslims “pawns to the devil” and describing “the gay lifestyle” as an abomination.

At a board meeting last week, Johnson County Board members said they needed to know if Naylor’s beliefs affected staff or inmates at the Muscatine jail. The Council on American-Islamic Relations also asked that Naylor be fired.
