The Burlington City Council came to a tie vote last night on a proposal to censure member Tim Scott.
Scott apologized to Councilwoman Anderson, who he had hit with a pile of papers two weeks ago. He also apologized to the black community, for comments he made at that same meeting and two days later to a Des Moines TV reporter, and to transplanted Chicagoans, for calling them part of the problem with local crime…
Scott says it’s been his intention all along to apologize…..
Many in the standing-room-only crowd last night were there to comment on Scott’s behavior, including Debbie Smith of West Burlington, a Chicago transplant, who said you have to give respect to get it…..
Bob Noll, another former Chicagoan, said he didn’t know why anyone was insulted by Scott’s comments…..
