Md. delegate apologizes for proposal stunt

A Maryland lawmaker has broadened his apology for a marriage proposal stunt involving Baltimore police to city residents and his constituents.

Democratic Delegate Jon Cardin already had apologized to the police department for putting officers in an awkward position by asking them to use a helicopter and a police boat during his Aug. 7 proposal.

On his Web site, Cardin is now making a wider apology, while also saying he hopes his mistake in judgment will not define his career.

The Baltimore County Democrat has already said he intends to reimburse the city for expenses related to the phony raid on the boat where he made his proposal.
