The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that State Representative Pedro Colon (D) has "apologized" for criticizing Rep. Stephen Nass (R) for missing debate on the expulsion of Rep. Jeff Wood due to his mother's death. The alleged "apology" goes like this:
On Friday, Colon issued an apology, saying he had not meant any criticism of Nass and offering his “sincerest and deepest regrets” on the loss of his mother.
"I am very sorry that my statements were misconstrued on the floor of the Assembly and I certainly did not intend to criticize Representative Nass for missing session last night due to the unfortunate death of his mother," Colon said.
I am very sorry that "my statements were misconstrued????" "..."I certainly did not intend to criticize Representative Nass for missing session last night due to the unfortunate death of his mother?????" Really Representative Colon: exactly what DID you mean by "I know he had a death in the family...but if he wants to prosecute he should be here?" This is an apology? This is a joke.
