POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- A New York state lawmaker says he's embarrassed, after he mistakenly sent out an e-mail message that referred to his constituents as "idiots."
Assemblyman Willis Stephens says he thought he was sending the e-mail to an aide. Instead, he sent the note to nearly 300 people on an online discussion group that focuses on the community of Brewster.
The message included the comment that he was "just watching the idiots pontificate."
Within an hour of sending the message Monday morning, Stephens sent another e-mail apologizing for the slip-up.
Stephens, a Republican, represents an area north of New York City.
Idiots in politcs is often its own reward.
Must have been dumocrats.
Who's the idiot now, Willie?
...until the next election...
How funny. I always hoped this would happen but by a democrat liberal. scheesh, guess he won't be re-elected...lol
The only mistake he made is that he publicly expressed what all the other politicians keep to themselves.
Probably not for very long.
What's really bad about this is that of 150 seats we only hold 46 as it is. If this dope is thrown out ..... well, I guess we AINT getting back the NYS Assembly anytime soon anyway.
Politicians are aware of their own character and personality.
They are also aware that the voters elected them.
Can we blame them for coming to a logical conclusion?
Just damn. I've sent a few that were misaddressed in my time.
Sounds like a RINO to me.
What's his handle on FR ?
ProoFReader ? lol
And in NY, it's a good chance they were....
