GALACTIC CITY, CORUSCANT - Senator Orn Free Taa (Ryloth) issued a public apology today following what he now describes as "tactless and inappropriate" remarks made on the Amberdawn
morning show. In yesterday's broadcast, Taa joked about Trade Federation Senator Lott Dod's skyway accident. "He's probably calling it an outrage, [and] thinks that the Skyway Flyer company has a long history of anti-Neimoidian sentiment, and has evidence that the transit company is horning in on Trade Federation markets." Dod, recovering at the Fobosi District Medcenter reportedly described the Twi'lek Senator's statements as "outrageous."
