Jessica Chasmar has the story:
A Municipal Housing Commissioner and Common Council candidate in Buffalo, New York, has apologized for a secretly recorded conversation in which he is overheard repeatedly using the N-word when referring to black politicians.
“The [expletive] n–—s, man,” Joseph A. Mascia is heard saying. “Once they’re in power, forget about it, forget it. They want it all.”
On the recording, obtained by The Buffalo News, the Democrat is heard at least eight times using the N-word when referring to Mayor Byron W. Brown, Council President Darius G. Pridgen, Assemblywoman Crystal Peoples-Stokes and Dawn Sanders-Garrett, executive director of the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority.
Did I say “Republican” in the headline? Sorry — of course I meant “Democrat.”
