UPDATE: Representative Maloney has apologized for using a quote with the N word:

"I apologize for having repeated a word I find disgusting," Maloney said in a statement.

"It's no excuse but I was so caught up in relaying the story exactly as it was told to me that, in doing so, I repeated a word that should never be repeated," she said.

City Hall News Editor, Edward-Isaac Dovere's piece on NY Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney features a conversation during which she used the N word while slamming Kirsten Gillibrand, the woman who replaced Hillary Clinton in the New York Senate. For more of Dovere's piece keeping reading here.

There is Carolyn Maloney, ripping into Kirsten Gillibrand broad and hard for voting against the two stimulus bills and for changing her positions on several core Democratic issues, sounding out her case on the fly as, "It's the NRA, it's immigration, it's all these other things. In fact, I got a call from someone from Puerto Rico, said [Gillibrand] went to Puerto Rico and came out for English-only [education]. And he said, 'It was like saying n--r to a Puerto Rican,'" she said, using the full racial slur. "I don't know--I don't know if that's true or not. I just called. I'm just throwing that out. All of her--well, what does she stand for?"
