Sounds more like he called Jesus a retard, which is by far more insulting.

Remember when Comrade Obama was bowling and he had this to say "“It was like Special Olympics or something.”

Seems Monroe County Democrats have some soft skin. Or is it News !0 and Berkeley Brean?

This is another in the long line of ridiculous political bs that is going on in NYS. Don't we have enough things to worry about also this is the longest article I think I have ever seen on this website. I think I have to go somewhere else to get my news!

Ahhh,another elected official in our great city that should learn if you can't do your job diplomaticly,find a new job.He owes a quick public apology to all affected by his poor choice of wording.To put the name of Jesus before a slur was a poor choice in itself.

I watched the official tape, and the mouth movement of gentleman on the far right side of the video matches the words exactly. How convenient to "not remember" saying anything like that.

Are you kidding me news 10?? Do you honestly think that this crap is newsworthy?

I wonder how many people who have already posted on this work for Monroe County? I hope News 10 NBC will actually keep this on the front burner and not let every other Maggie Brooks & Co. mistake go away. Funny how Dan Quatro moved his microphone down after it was said.

How sad that our tollerance of this kind of slur remains as high as it is as reflected in these comments. An elected official used a known slur then lied about it. That in itself should be grounds for removal from office. The man is a coward. He should admit his disrespectful behavior and resign. This after having ranted about the political posturing of the other side over Robutrad! County Republicans are a disgrace to this community.

The worst thing about this is that the guy used the Lord's name in vain. That's not cool. But newsworthy?
