Senator Bond said he was shocked that a senior aide of his had been using the tail number of the airplane that crashed and killed Governor Carnahan in the address to his political Web site. Bond has fired Communications Director Ernie Blazar after the Web site came to light. The senator refused to speak with the news media about the incident and ordered his staff not to talk about it. Bond last week would only issue a written statement that he taped and offered to radio stations. But Bond addressed the incident briefly this weekend when asked by a reporter about it at a groundbreaking of an ethanol plant in Malta Bend. Bond said he has apologized to the people that he knew were offended by the use of the tail number. The senator said he has served Missouri as a politician for three decades and though he has fought vigorously for his positions, he does not believe in this type of personal, political attack.
