Irmo Official Criticized For Calling Constituents 'Rednecks'

(Irmo, SC)  --  A Midlands official is being accused of making what some constituents call appalling and derogatory comments.  

Irmo Mayor Pro-Tem Mark Pouliot can be heard in a recording of a meeting this week calling some people rednecks.  When he was discussing a new law that will ban people from parking in their yards, he quoted comedian Jeff Foxworthy and said 'you might be a redneck if.'  

Pouliot tells 'WIS 10 News' he was just trying to make a joke, and he's sorry if he offended anyone.
