Brown Apologizes for Calling Whitman a ‘Whore’

After Attorney General Jerry Brown campaign apologized to Republican Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman for calling her a “whore,” he was forced to repeat his plea for forgiveness at the third debate. “It’s unfortunate, I’m sorry it happened, and I apologize,” the 72-year-old former governor said. But Whitman, 54, seemed to be left unsatisfied by Brown’s gesture to change  the “nasty” tone of the campaign. ‘It’s not just me but the people of California who deserve better than slurs,’ she said. Brown had been recorded saying to an unidentified aide five weeks ago: “Do we want to put an ad out… that I have been warned if I crack down on pensions… that they’ll go to Whitman.” The person with Brown said: “What about saying she’s a whore?” Brown answered: “Well, I’m going to use that. It proves you’ve cut a secret deal to protect the pensions.” Last week, Brown’s campaign manager Steven Glazer said: “We apologize to Mrs. Whitman and anyone who may have been offended.”
