published an apology for his comments during a higher education subcommittee meeting last Thursday.
During the meeting, Polis said that it would be better to suspend 10 students who were accused of sexual assault if there was the possibility that "maybe one or two did it." Now he says that was a "poor choice of words."
"During that exchange I went too far by implying that I support expelling innocent students from college campuses, which is something neither I nor other advocates of justice for survivors of sexual assault support. That is not what I meant to say and I apologize for my poor choice of words," Polis wrote.
The column also was published at the Daily Camera.
