A day after Virginia House Speaker William Howell (R), former national chairman and current national board member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), berated a woman, he apologized for his outrageous behavior. In a statement, Howell said “I responded to a series of questions from Anna Scholl, Executive Director of ProgressVA, in a manner that was not consistent with my own standards of civility or reflective of the way I believe discussions over public policy disagreements should be conducted. I have since called Ms. Scholl and offered my sincere and heartfelt apology for my comments to her.”
