After a gorilla escaped from a Columbia, South Carolina zoo last week, an aide to the Attorney General posted a harmless note about it on his Facebook page. [GOP activiest] Rusty DePass replied, "I'm sure it's just one of Michelle's ancestors - probably harmless."
"I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest," DePass says, adding, "The comment was hers. Not mine." According to DePass, Michelle Obama talks about how humans were descended from apes all the time.
