Don Young apologizes to members of the Republican Study Committee:
Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) apologized to the Republican Study Committee (RSC) Wednesday for attacking the group and one of its members on the floor two weeks ago.
According to sources familiar with the events in the closed-door meeting, an emotional, remorseful Young told members he had come to them as a humbled human being.
“I come to you as a weakened man whose weaknesses are greater than my strengths at times,” he said.
Young listed traumatic events within his state, his hospitalization last week and the hospitalization of his wife as reasons that caused him to act inappropriately on the House floor.
It's good to see his heart is in the right place. If he'll become less a fan of earmarks, that will be even better.
