I own it. It’s all on me. I take full responsibility for the Chernika Johnson V Nina Houghs controversy. Not the Judges, not the sanctioned body. Me. I have apologized to all involved and now I apologize to you. I am sorry for what happened. Again I own it and can only try and do better next time. Not my best day in the office.
