I just saw the below "apology" on MichaelMoore.com...thanks Eric!

This is the biggest crock of horse manure ever.

Everyone is saying how "wonderful" it is that they apologized to me.

Look at a few things they said: My "initial" conduct wasn't enough to warrant me getting arrested.

None of my conduct was. I didn't yell at the officer, or call anyone an "idiot" like Mrs. Young did.

Secondly, it states the Mrs. Young wasn't arrested because she didn't "return to the gallery."

Why did they arrest me? They didn't even give me the opportunity to leave the gallery.

They had fours hours to figure out that I didn't do anything wrong. The Capitol police tried the tactic of smearing me and lying about me when I was in jail to the media. I guess they didn't count on the Reuter's reporter who was sitting right next to me.

They also started lying about me when I was in jail, I heard a female officer say "She took off her jacket and threw it." And Mike Weight, who arrested me, said I "stood up and started yelling something."

The Capitol police could not support their lies, that's why they apologized.

That's the only reason.
