How does this look?

HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson has now come forward to say how sorry he is that in a public speech he told a story about how he kills government contracts if the owners of the companies in question don’t support President Bush. Now he admits that it never happened. It wasn’t true. And in fact he never lets politics interfere with HUD contracting decisions.

This reminds me of the time I walked into a bank and told them I’d stolen a bunch of their money even though I hadn’t. I really regretted that.

Or the time I told a good friend I’d slept with his girlfriend even though I hadn’t. I really regretted that too.

Alphonso Jackson. HUD Secretary.
