Gov. Bev Perdue's son, Garrett, 34, put his virtual foot in his mouth earlier this month when he referred to a New Bern political fundraiser as "chronic adulterer and town crier" on a Facebook posting about an event for former Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory.

Garrett Perdue never named his target, but, according to Politico, the May 11 event was held at the home of Buddy Stallings.

Perdue posted an apology to Facebook, writing "I regret that my actions may reflect poorly on my family."
