Lamont Aide Will Apologize for Comment

Friday, August 11, 2006

(08-11) 07:34 PDT Waterbury, Conn. (AP) — Democrat Ned Lamont's campaign manager said he will send an apology to the mayor of Waterbury for describing the city that backed his opponent, Sen. Joe Lieberman, as a place "where the forces of slime meet the forces of evil."

Tom Swan said the comment was made to a reporter on Tuesday, after the city voted heavily for Lieberman in the Democratic Senate primary…

Swan said his statement was not meant to be reflective of the city and said he would send an apology to Mayor Michael J. Jarjura Friday. Jarjura became aware of Swan's comments Thursday when the Lieberman campaign sent Jarjura chief of staff Sheila O'Malley an Internet link to a Connecticut political news site where the comments appeared…

Well at least he didn't call Waterbury "Hymietown."

But isn't it funny how our one party media only tells us about Democrats saying such things afterthey apologize.

If then.
