Ex-Pa. justice apologizes for anti-Obama e-mail

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- A former Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice is apologizing after her signature was on an e-mail message to Jewish voters that likened a vote for Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama to ignoring warning signs that led to the Holocaust.

In an e-mail Monday, Sandra Schultz Newman said the e-mail was misguided and she regrets she did not carefully review the final draft before it was released.

The e-mail was sent Thursday to 75,000 Jewish voters in Pennsylvania. It touts Republican John McCain's qualifications over Obama's.

GOP officials said they never approved the e-mail and the political consultant who wrote it was fired.

Schultz and the names of two other McCain supporters were on the e-mail.
