Oregon Congressman David Wu spent last weekend and the early part of this week on something of a “mea culpa” tour.
The Democratic congressman granted interviews to a number of local media, to explain his controversial behavior, and to assure his constituents that he’s able to do his job.
He wasn’t completely forthcoming, though. In an interview with OPB, he said he is receiving treatment, but wouldn’t say what for.
David Wu: “I think that Congressmen get at least a little privacy. And I think that talking about speculative or specific diagnoses is within my sphere of privacy.”
We’re talking about the continuing saga of Congressman David Wu, and other topics this morning for our weekly political chat.
