Apologies

Candidate Sorry to 'That Jew' Schumer

Oh the South: Arkansas State Senator Kim Hendren, the only announced Republican candidate for U.S. Senator against Blanche Lincoln in 2010, has apologized to Senator Chuck Schumer for calling him “that Jew” last week. “I don't use a teleprompter and occasionally I put my foot in my month," Hendren said. "At the meeting I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on The Andy Griffith Show. I made the mistake of referring to Sen. Schumer as 'that Jew' and I should not have put it that way as this took away from what I was trying to say.”
