Fairfield legislator apologizes for anti-Muslim Facebook remarks
John Picchiotti, who is up for re-election as a town councilor Tuesday, said he only read the top portion of the post and wasn't aware of the content.
A Fairfield state representative and town councilor apologized Friday for a Facebook post in which he copied a chain email that contained anti-Muslim remarks.
John Picchiotti said he only read the top portion of the email and didn't realize it contained anti-Muslim language at the bottom when he posted it to his Facebook page Thursday night. After a liberal blogger reported on the Facebook post Friday, Picchiotti said he realized his error and deleted the post.
He posted an apology on his Facebook page late Friday afternoon.
