Schrader Statement Regarding Comments on Caucus Conference Call
I take complete responsibility for the language I used on the Caucus Conference call this afternoon. My words were wrong, hurtful and completely inappropriate. I sincerely apologize to my colleagues, constituents and friends for the pain I caused. I recognize the horrible historical context of these words and have started to reach out to my colleagues personally to express that I understand the harm caused. I will work hard to rebuild trust and again, I humbly apologize.
