City Councilman and former mayor Greg Lanting personally apologized Tuesday afternoon to the parents of a five-year-old girl who had been sexually assaulted and urinated on by 3 Iraqi and Sudanese MUSLIM refugee boys in June at the Fawnbrook apartments, for false statements he made about the family last week on Facebook.
Breitbart The Tuesday meeting with the parents comes after Lanting admitted Monday evening that he “was wrong” in his Facebook criticism of the family. As Twin Falls TV Station KMVTreports:
He said he would like to make amends to the family in whatever capacity he could. “I was wrong, I would like to apologize and I went on to try to make amends and if somebody could tell me, I could no longer find the liberty of justice Go Fund Me account,” said council member Greg Lanting. “I’d like to make an additional contribution.”
Lanting’s apology was a tacit admission of the accuracy of an article which Breitbart News published over the weekend. Breitbart reported that Lanting had said on Facebook:
You realize these Internet Fake news agencies can LIE all they want and can never be proven wrong. The case is sealed we will never know more than we know now. Another obvious lie is the child does not live with the father. The police and now the courts have had the video since the night of the assault. The father as far as I know it is not even involved with the child. All Caps no way he saw the video. I doubt they even talked to him. Let justice be served and let this child have a chance at a normal life without making up lies about what happened to her. The police and the courts are doing every thing according to state law!!!
