Ariz. Governor Says She Was Wrong About Beheadings

Friday, 03 Sep 2010 06:14 PM


Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she was wrong when she claimed that headless bodies were turning up in the Arizona desert as part of border-related violence.

The Republican incumbent's June comments about border-related violence were raised during a debate by her Democratic opponent who said the comments were false and damaging to Arizona's image.

Brewer didn't respond to Democrat Terry Goddard's challenge during the debate or afterward when reporters asked about the claim.

But she since is acknowledging in media interviews that she was wrong.

She says she was referring to beheadings and other cartel-related violence in Mexico that could spill over into the United States and that she is sorry if people were misled.
