all apologies

Sen. Saxby Chambliss’ ‘All Faggots Must Die’ Staffer: Fired

Though he won’t name the staffer who left the comment, Sen. Saxby Chambliss says the Senate aide who posted “all faggots must die” on the blog Joe.My.God has been fired. He called the blogger, Joe Jervis, to offer his apologies: “I don’t know if you’re Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, but none of that should matter. Because what was said on your blog by someone from my office is just not acceptable, no matter who is saying it and who it’s being said to. I just want to offer my sincerest apologies.” In a statement, Chambliss says, “Regardless of one’s position on issues and policies, such comments are simply unacceptable, are not befitting those who work in the U.S. Senate, and I will not tolerate them from my staff.” And yet Andrew Shirvell still has a job, yahoo!
