On Wednesday, Sly sent a letter to Kleefisch apologizing for what he described as “my inappropriate comments on Monday morning’s program.”
Sly explained: “Although I do not share Lt. Gov. Kleefisch’s political philosophy, I know how difficult it is for women to compete in the political arena and to be recognized for their achievements.”
“I offer Lt. Gov. Kleefisch and her family my most sincere apology,” continued the radio host, who has frequently backed women candidates over the years. “I have tremendous respect for women who devote their time and careers to public service whether I share their views or not. I regret that my comments did not reflect that.”
Sly deserves credit for his apology, and for his recognition of the importance of encouraging political diversity.
