Mayor Offers Apology Only After Video Surfaces

During a heated moment at a City Council meeting, Bristol, CT Mayor Art Ward (D) told city Councilor Ken Cockayne to "shut the fuck up."

The Bristol Press reports Ward "denied uttering the comment, though he readily admitted he's often wanted to tell Cockayne to clam up. He said then that the words were no doubt in his mind, but he wouldn't say them in a council setting."

Finally he apologized after learning his words were actually captured on video.
