Todd Says He's Sorry, Then Lawyers Up



Rep. Curry Todd says he's "deeply sorry" but doesn't quit either his committee chairmanship or his office or explain what he thought he was doing last night. Instead, employing an old trick of people with serious PR problems, he lawyers up, claiming he can't talk "on the advice of legal counsel."

“Let me begin by saying I am deeply sorry for the events of last evening. On the advice of legal counsel, I have decided not to make any public comments about the situation at this time.

“Upon her return to the Capitol, I will have a conversation with Speaker Harwell to determine whether it is in the best interest of the General Assembly for me to step aside as Chairman of the State and Local Government Committee.

“On a personal note, I am incredibly grateful for the calls of support from constituents, colleagues, and friends about this incident.”
