A member of the Danbury Democratic Town Committee has apologized for accusing Congressional candidate Jahana Hayes of “veiled racism.”  Martha Rhodes made the initial comment in a long Facebook post after attending a debate in Torrington between Hayes and endorsed-candidate Mary Glassman.  In a written statement, Rhodes said her post was in-artfully worded and she didn't intend to imply that Hayes' race had any bearing on her fitness for office.  That post said Rhodes felt excluded by Hayes because she is white and Hayes "harped on how government should look like her while veiling her own racism with allusions to diversity and fairness in her final remarks."
