Grayson apologizes for 'whore' remark

27

October

Orlando Democrat Alan Grayson has once again issued an apology for some of his remarks. (Last time he apologized for invoking the Holocaust during a health care speech)

“I offer my sincere apology to Linda Robertson, an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.  I did not intend to use a term that is often, and correctly, seen as disrespectful of women. This characterization of Ms. Robertson, made during a radio interview last month in the context of the debate over whether the Federal Reserve should be independently audited, was inappropriate, and I apologize.”
