TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Three city council members in New Jersey’s capital city have apologized for using or defending anti-Semitic language while discussing actions taken by the city’s Jewish attorney.
Councilwoman Robin Vaughn apologized in a statement on Wednesday.
She says her defense of Council President Kathy McBride was wrong. McBride apologized at Tuesday’s council hearing, and Councilman George Muschal, who used the trope defending McBride, apologized early Wednesday.
McBride’s comments were initially made in a closed-door session. They became public after The Trentonian obtained a recording.
McBride expresses concern over a city legal settlement with an injured woman.
