Last week, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz characterized Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker as a promoter of the political equivalent of domestic violence. She has now apologized for the incendiary remarks which she made at a Democrat-sponsored media event, reports The Hill.
In a statement issued over the weekend, Schutlz said “I shouldn’t have used the words I used,” which amounted likely to the understatement of the year.
She then went on to defend her attacks in the face of Republican criticism, “As for the issue of domestic violence, it’s unacceptable that a majority of Congressional Republicans opposed this critical legislation, of which I was a proud cosponsor, after blocking its reauthorization for more than a year.”
How exactly she proposed to tie Scott Walker to a congressional vote not to her liking was unclear.
