“I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved,” Mr. Etheridge said in a statement. “Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response.”
He added, “I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.”
“I deeply and profoundly regret the existence of them damned infernal video cameras. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I’ve somehow escaped being videotaped, I’ve always treated people like this and think it sux that it’s now public knowledge. No matter how intrusive and partisan those cameras can be, this does not justify the use of the damned things.”
He added, “I have and I will always work to pretend to promote a civil public discourse but these damned gadgets are getting in the way of that pretension.”
