"I Think You're An A**hole"

That's how a letter from Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) ended. It was sent to Bill Jones, a constituent in Centerville, Missouri. Even though the letter was signed by the Congresswoman, and included a hand-written note from her apologizing for a delay in responding, the representative denies knowing anything about the obscenity or how it was included in the correspondence.
"We cannot determine whether the addition to the letter was made by someone within the office or by someone with access to the office, but it is on my letterhead and the responsibility for it lies with me. A valuable lesson has been learned and new procedures will be adopted as a result."
