Marshall Calls CNS Story ‘Slanderous’

In a seven-minute speech from the House floor, Delegate Bob Marshall on Wednesday accused Capital News Service of twisting his words in a story about his remarks last week linking disabled babies to prior abortions.

“If some want to make their own inferences, that is their prerogative. However, they should acknowledge that is what they are doing,” Marshall said. “It is no one’s prerogative to claim I spoke words which never came from my mouth, have never been in my heart and have never been in my public record.”
