DescriptionA Jersey City assemblyman is apologizing this morning for a misogynist, homophobic message that he says a friend posted to his Facebook wall during yesterday’s Giants game.

Assemblyman Charles Mainor, a Jersey City police detective who represents the 31st Legislative District in the state Assembly, posted a message last night that read, "We are not going to just lay down, we come to play. Who the hell do you think we are the DALLAS COWGIRLS OR THOSE GAYBIRDS FROM PHILLY...NO WE ARE THE NEW YORK GIANTS.”

Today, after being told that The Jersey Journal had received at least one phone call complaining about the message’s anti-woman, anti-gay tone, Mainor apologized, and said he only wrote half of it.
