Two days after drawing criticism for ogling a 24-year-old aide at a public meeting, Comptroller William Donald Schaefer apologized to the woman today in a hand-delivered letter.
The letter was delivered at 2:45 p.m. to the woman, who works in Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s office.
Earlier in the day, Schaefer seemed unrepentant, telling a gaggle of TV reporters who followed him into a budget hearing, "I did nothing i should apologize for."
He blamed the media for embarassing the "pretty little girl" and for trying to make "something small into something big."
"She's 23 or 24 years old, had nobody every looked at her before?" he asked.
The incident occurred at Wednesday's Board of Public Works meeting, when Schaefer stared at the aide as she walked out of the room, then called her back and asked her to "walk again" so he could watch. (video clip)
