This morning I received this message directly from Robert Bland, campaign manager for the Tea Party members of the Hinsdale District 86 board:
My name is Robert Bland. I am campaign manager for the Gershuny, Cappetta and Skoda campaign. I have decided to publicly apologize to the Dupont family and my candidates for my inexcusably poor choice of words in several online exchanges regarding last week’s incident that involved a Hinsdale South student and a sitting District 86 board member. I have 7 children and have always taught them to apologize when warranted and so I am doing that here.
-March 20, 2015.
Earlier Bland had declared, “No apology coming. Not now. Not ever.”
Why apologize to me?
I wasn’t the one he called a tart.
