Congressman Joe Morelle has apologized to Monroe County Legislator Sabrina LaMar, saying he never tried to get her fired from her job at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
LaMar appeared on a Facebook Live program hosted by Morelle's Democratic primary opponent. LaMar says she was suspended for a short time after Morelle emailed her supervisor. Morelle says he reached out to RIT to see if there was a conflict of interest, and considered the matter resolved after they explained their internal policy.
Morelle says in retrospect, he wishes he hadn't done it and "deeply apologizes" to Legislator LaMar.
