So said Mark Warner in May 1994.
After 14 years of denials, according to the Jim Gilmore for Senate campaign, Gov. Warner has finally admitted that he made the offensive comments.
“After repeatedly denying for years that he made these intolerant statements, Mark Warner this weekend finally owned up to the hurtful remarks after an audio recording of him making these demeaning comments was made public,” said Ana Gamonal, the Gilmore Campaign Communications Director, according to a news release today.
“What is even sadder than his admitting that he had lied, after of years of denial, is the best Mark Warner could offer was that his comments were perhaps “over the top” and that he had [‘]learned a lot[‘] since then, with no offer of an apology to the people he attacked …,” Gamonal said.
