Lamont’s Campaign Manager: I’m Sorry

3

As I was browsing through memeorandum today, I came across something rather weird.

From the AP:

WATERBURY, Conn. – Democrat Ned Lamont’s campaign manager said he would apologize 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 made Tuesday, after the city voted heavily for Lieberman in the Democratic Senate primary, was in the context of a broader discussion of state politics in which former Mayor Philip A. Giordano was the “slime” and former Gov. John G. Rowland was the “evil.”

Giordano is serving a prison sentence on federal child sex charges and Rowland, a Waterbury native, was forced to resign in 2004 and served a federal prison term for corruption.

Swan said that his statement was not meant to be reflective of the city and that he would send an apology Friday to Mayor Michael J. Jarjura.

Oh no…of course he didn’t mean it that way.

Hmm, wonder if the good people of Connecticut will remember this come election time?
