all apologies

NH Rep. Nancy Elliott Is Sorry for Lying About 5th Graders Learning About Butt Sex. But Not Sorry For Offending Gays

SOUNDBITES — “I am compelled by the fact that the statement cannot be verified that I withdraw the statement I made in committee last Tuesday regarding the Nashua schools. I was told shortly before the hearing on HB 1590 that what I later said had happened and I firmly believed it to be so. It is for that reason and because of its relevance that I brought it up to the committee. I would have never said anything in the performance of my duties as a state representative that I did not believe was true or relevant. I am presenting this letter at the first committee meeting of Judiciary since last Tuesday. I do so at the earliest opportunity in order to make clear I am withdrawing what I said regarding the Nashua schools. I would like to apologize to Judiciary Committee, the Nashua public schools and its employees and the speaker as well as anyone else affected by what I said. I will try much harder in the future to verify fully my statement.” —New Hampshire State Rep. Nancy Elliott apologizing to many parties — for her disgusting remarks about how gay marriage will lead to fifth graders being taught about anal sex — but not gay people (via)
