What ‘race’ is Islam? Rep. John Picchiotti (below), a Fairfield state representative and town councilor has bowed down and begged forgiveness for a Facebook post which he copied from a chain email that contained fact-based anti-Muslim remarks.
Press Herald John Picchiotti said he only read the top portion of the email and didn’t realize it contained anti-Muslim language at the bottom when he posted it to his Facebook page Thursday night. After a liberal blogger reported on the Facebook post Friday, Picchiotti said he realized his error and deleted the post.
