Eckersley: News-Leader should apologize to former Metropolitan Grill workers

In an op-ed in this morning's Springfield News-Leader, Democratic Seventh District Congressional candidate Scott Eckersley said the newspaper should apologize to the former Metropolitan Grill workers who leveled charges that Eckersley's opponent, Billy Long, cavorted with strippers, gambled, and made racist, sexist, and homophobic remarks:

I believe Jennifer Case and Robert Bush deserve a great deal of credit for stepping into the "arena" as described above. On top of that, they both deserve an apology and retraction for enduring the unethical tactics and faulty reporting done by this newspaper. The same apology should go to Christopher Case as well. He is Jennifer's husband and a decorated soldier serving our country in Afghanistan. It is he who ultimately gave Jennifer his blessing to "do the right thing" which meant stepping forward into the public eye to let voters know her concerns. It was his character that inspired Jennifer to step into the arena. And now others have joined her.

As soon as you apologize to Matt Blunt, News-Leader will apologize to you.
