Fla. County Chairwoman Apologizes for Use of ‘Jewing’

By: JTA

The chairwoman of a board of commissioners in Franklin County, Fla., said she apologized to those who questioned her for using the word “jewing” to describe salary discussions at a public meeting.

Cheryl Sanders told Jim Romenesko, who runs an eponymous news business blog, that her use of the word at a July 2 meeting had “been blown out of proportion.” She would not share with Romenesko the email she sent that included the apology, he reported Monday on his blog.

A July 10 account of the meeting published on ApalachicolaTimes.com reported that the board of commissioners in a 3-2 vote to name Howard Nabors to head the Florida Panhandle county’s roads department even though he does not have a high school degree.

An argument ensued over whether Nabors deserved a $45,000 salary, which Sanders had proposed.

“Today’s not the day to do it,” the Times quoted Sanders as saying. “We’re here [for Nabors’ salary], not to be up here jewing over somebody’s pay. I can’t believe that you all would put a man down who has worked here for 26 years because he don’t have a high school education.”

  1. She need’s to resign and step down ,she’s not fit for the job .

  2. She’s just doing what gentiles in the US commonly say. But it applies more to them.

  3. Edward Lobel says:

    She is just sorry she got caught!
    She knows what she said is despicable and bigoted, but she doesn't care!
    She will be more careful the next time she wants to use an anti-Semitic statement so she will not get caught and have to apologize to the Jews again!

  4. Mary Carrick says:

    Hilarious!

  5. Anthony Davis says:

    So? There are Jews who have openly expressed their happiness over the death of Trayvon Martin. Where is their apology to black people?

  6. Pad Dar says:

    "Apology to black people?" Jews lost their lives for blacks in the 60's. Now blacks murder whites and Jews.
