A Maryland Democratic lawmaker apologized to the states Legislative Black Caucus Monday after calling a district in Prince Georges County a n***** district.
Del. Mary Ann Lisanti, who is white, was approached by the caucus regarding her alleged remarks Monday night, after news broke that Lisanti had said the racial slur at a cigar bar in Annapolis, Maryland, while speaking to a colleague, who was also white, after work late one night.
The Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland chair, Del. Darryl Barnes, said Lisanti apologized multiple times but also added he thinks anyone who uses the word is a reflection of whats in their heart, The Washington Post reported.
She apologized several times, Barnes, a Democrat, said. She recognizes how she has hurt so many within the caucus, and she hoped to repent from this. She said that she doesnt remember fully what happened, but she recognizes what happened.
I do think that someone who uses the word, its a reflection of whats in their heart, Barnes said.
Lisanti was reportedly questioned about the use of the racial slur in early February. She denied ever using the word but also said she did not remember much of that night. Lisanti also said she is sure she has used the racial slur before in her life.
I dont recall that. I dont recall much of that evening, Lisanti said to The Washington Post. She was also asked if she had ever used the racial slur before. Im sure I have. Im sure everyone has used it. Ive used the f-word. I used the Lords name in vain, she said.
Maryland Democratic House Speaker Michael E. Busch condemned the comments, saying Lisanti should face the consequences of her behavior and that there is no place in the House of Delegates for any racial slurs or slurs of any kind in society in general.

Barnes said it is possible the Black Caucus gives other recommendations to House leadership about Lisantis position in the state House.
Yes, yes, you had to be a big shot, didn't you You had to prove it to the crowd..
And, really, really, really meant it. As in she was sorry she got caught.
Party of diversity right there
I’ll bet he is one of those KKK/neo-Nazi white nationalists. That’s what they would say about a Republican.
This has been floating around for the past day. That racist Democrat should resign, resign now, today! Past time for Democrats to start cleaning up their racist ranks.
If they cleaned out their racist ranks, nobody would be left.
If she’s apologizing for actually saying it, why is it called “alleged” ?
Democrats don’t resign.................They evolve................
Yeah, I caught that after I posted.
Newspaper and TV/Radio networks use ‘alleged’ as a CYA word so they don’t get sued for LIBEL..............
So democratics can be forgiven for:
Wearing blackface makeup
Being in the KKK
Using racist words in public
Calling for murder of Trump supporters
The list is getting long!
Including blacks or only for whites?
Why not let this women off. In Maryland they have been giving Biden a pass for 40 years. And Biden has said similar things.
And not a PEEP about this in the commie media, of course not..when Democrats do something bad the media doesnt report it, like it never happened
So truth isn’t a defense in the 21st century?
A Republican would already be out of office, but a democrat, well they get away with their racism.
