In retrospect I probably should not have identified the source of those emails. I was not aware there was an “effort by some to have her removed from her position within the 9th District GOP”. I make it a rule not to get involved in petty disputes that pre-date my joining an organization. For that I apologize.
Updated on 3/2 to add: I’m told by several reliable sources that her apology was dated 2/25 – 3 days after the email was sent and 4 days before my original post.
