Rep. Capuano Regrets Volatile Comments To Union Workers

BOSTON — Rep. Michael Capuano apologized for comments he made at the State House earlier this week.

Capuano was speaking to Massachusetts union workers who’d gathered in support of the union protest in Wisconsin over state budget cutting plans there.

He told workers: “Every once in a while you have to get out in the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

Now, Capuano said he regrets his choice of words, and says he let his passion “get the best of him.”

Republicans, nationally and in Massachusetts condemned Capuano’s remarks.
