Egg on his face, Roggio sends condolences but no apology to Gerlach

This statement was issued today by the Bob Roggio For Congress campaign:
We wish to offer our deepest condolences to Jim Gerlach and his family on his mother's passing.

Bob Roggio and his campaign staff

Liz Conroy
Campaign Manager
Bob Roggio for Congress
w. 610.251.0550
Note there is no reference to the insensitive press release issued by the very same campaign on Monday accusing U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach of abandoning his constituents for missing a House vote to attend his mother's funeral.

Also note that the liberal bloggers are ignoring this story. Imagine what they would do if things were reversed and a Republican displayed such insensitivity toward a Democratic opponent.
