Correcting the record: Jazmine Early did NOT lie about the appeal currently before the U.S. 6th District Court of Appeals
Earlier this week, i committed an enormous error in accusing Jazmine Early, candidate for Sterling Heights City Council, of lying to the public regarding the outcome of a court case regarding the proposed mosque on 15 Mile Road west of Mound Road that has been the subject of controversy for several years now.
As a matter of fact, Mrs. Early did not lie. Instead, I made a mistake in my research and confused two different court cases with the same title as being one and the same. The error and the unfounded accusation of Mrs. Early’s deceitfulness are my own, and I regret them.
The research I did revealed the outcome of the case that has been decided already; the audio Mrs. Early linked to was to the appeal. Unfortunately, I confused the two, and I drew the wrong conclusion. The activity I have recently seen at the site of the proposed mosque reinforced my mistaken belief that the case was settled, and so I found myself convinced of something that was not the case.
I apologize, the mistake here was my own. Mrs. Early is entitled to fair treatment by me and the other people who comment on her candidacy, both for and against. I treated her unfairly because of this error, and I am sorry that it happened.
I will be more careful in the future regarding matters of fact such as this. Although it was an honest mistake, I would have been well advised to leave this matter alone since it was difficult to ascertain the source of the information she provided as being different from the case that has been settled.
Once again, Jazmine Early, I am sorry for my error and for accusing you of lying.
