All the Perdue campaign says is it was a mistake and not intentional, The word or concept of "Sorry" doesn't exist.
Following on the footsteps of Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL), I believe that this is a new phenomenon that my partner at the Apology Institute of America Nell Minow and I may have to hold a seminar on -- the press stating that someone has apologized who hasn't. Hey, at least Mr. Yoho *used* the word apology, even if inaccurately.
In fact, though the headline says that Perdue himself "apologized," not only was there no apology, as noted -- but the statement was released by a spokesperson who didn't even quote the senator, but just made a general comment about Perdue's record.
If you can find the "apology" in this, you will get credit towards entry into your fellowship program. Here's the statement --
“In the graphic design process handled by an outside vendor, the photo was resized and a filter was applied, which appears to have caused an unintentional error that distorted the image. Obviously, this was accidental, but to ensure there is absolutely no confusion, we have immediately removed the image from Facebook. Anybody who implies that this was anything other than an inadvertent error is intentionally misrepresenting Senator Perdue’s strong and consistent record of standing firmly against anti-Semitism and all forms of hate.”
Further, we look forward to a release of David Perdue's many strong condemnations of anti-Semitism...
