An apology from Palm Beach Dem Chair Mark "Christians want Jews slaughtered" Alan Siegel

6

September

Palm Beach County Chairman Mark Alan Siegel sent the Palm Beach Post a statement about his nutty remarks yesterday:

“I apologize to all Democrats and Floridians for my ill chosen words last night. After watching the interview I realize that what I said did not accurately make the point I was trying to establish. More importantly I apologize to all Christians, Jews and other people of faith for any embarrassment or anger my remarks may have caused. Throughout my life I have practiced religious tolerance among all people of faith. I am sincerely sorry for any remarks I made that may have diminished that record. I alone am responsible for my remarks and I pray that they are not taken as the position of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.”
