John Kasich Is Sorry For Calling That Cop An Idiot

Posted By on Fri, Feb 18, 2011 at 11:57 AM


Governor Kasich was caught on tape last month telling state employees that a cop who issued him a ticket back in 2008 was "an idiot." Of course, that was news, and more than a few people were interested in the story, especially as the Governor deals with blowback from his move to take away collective bargaining rights from union employees.

So Kasich invited the cop, Robert Barrett, to a meeting and privately apologized to the Columbus officer for the derogatory remarks. Because, ya' know, he's sincerely sorry and all that. Or damage control. Or whatever. The AP reports that Barrett accepted Kasich's apology.
