Winner and loser of the week in Fla politics



carrolll.jpgnehr1.jpgWinner of the week: Jennifer Carroll. Politicians often use weasel words — "sorry if you were offended" — when making apologies. Florida's lieutenant governor showed class last week with a full-throated apology to gay Floridians offended by recent comments she made.

Loser of the week: Peter Nehr. Congratulations on the weight loss and that razor wire bicep tattoo, state Rep. Nehr. But please spare us the photos of you in your skivvies
