Racism OK in Private

After making anti-Semitic comments at a Nassau town meeting, a Republican councilman apologized. He said the comment was a "jest" and "not intended to be hurtful". Apology have something else to add? "I was somewhat surprised my comments were made public, since no residents (or Jews?) were in attendance at the meeting in which the comments were made".

Translation: I've been making racists comments my whole life but no one has every ratted on me before.
