Abrams won't confirm or deny 'boy' comments

Here's a big admission of innocence. According to the Washington Post, "Abrams neither confirmed nor denied making the comments."

Montgomery County Republican biggie Tom Reinheimer confirms that Abrams called the black Owen-Williams "boy," but said it wasn't as bad as people say.

"Reinheimer said he walked in on the men, and Abrams told him: 'See what your boy did? That's your boy.' He thinks Abrams meant to portray Owen-Williams as the chairman's political lackey."

"I think that can be taken in a racial context, but I don't think that's how Abrams meant it," said Reinheimer. After all, some of his best friends are black.
