NYC Mayor Bloomberg “Won’t Dignify” Rep. Shadegg’s Remarks; Shadegg Apologizes

Posted by | November 18, 2009 10:25 | Filed under: Top Stories

Arizona Republican John Shadegg, already infamous for dragging a baby onto the floor of the House and acting like a puppeteer, wanted to know how New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s daughers will feel when they’re kidnapped by a terrorist. Shadegg went after the mayor or, more specifically, his daughters, after Bloomberg said New Yorkers aren’t afraid of hosting terror trials.


“I saw the Mayor of New York said today, ‘We’re tough. We can do it.’ Well, Mayor, how are you going to feel when it’s your daughter that’s kidnapped at school by a terrorist? How are you going to feel when it’s some clerk — some innocent clerk of the court — whose daughter or son is kidnapped? Or the jailer’s little brother or little sister? This is political correctness run amok.”


Shadegg issued this apology: “I apologize for the insensitivity of my remarks with respect to the mayor or his family, however I think it is important to note that this decision involves potential risk to innocent people.”  To his credit, Shadegg didn’t apologize while holding a seven-month-old and making her mouth the words.
