Asheville City Councilman Cecil Bothwell apologized to his peer Jan Davis. Bothwell is running for Congress; Davis, for re-election. Allegedly, Bothwell told the Mountain Xpress Davis was corrupt for dealings with the ABC Board, which is suspect of funky doings. Davis, who strives never to say an unkind word, said he accepted Bothwell’s apology, if that was what it was, and he didn’t think that was what it was. It did, however, get Bothwell a big picture on the front of the newspaper, so it must have worked.

I have provided no links either because I am lazy or because I don’t want to increase the Google ranking of aspersions.
