MoveOn is really sorry for saying bad things about Charles Barron

As the Democratic establishment rallied around Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries’ congressional campaign, a number of forces weighed in. Among them was the progressive advocacy group MoveOn.org, which sent an email to its supporters declaring Mr. Jeffries opponent, Councilman Charles Barron, was “unfit to serve.”

The message proceeded to give a small “sampling” of some of the more controversial things Mr. Barron has said in the past, such as, “I want to go up to the closest white person and say, ‘You can’t understand this, it’s a black thing’ and then slap him, just for my mental health.” …

The organization received some criticism after the move and it seems that MoveOn truly regrets entering the Democratic primary, which was settled Tuesday of last week with an overwhelming victory by Mr. Jeffries. They sent out another email this evening profusely apologizing again and again for their aggressive rhetoric against Mr. Barron.
