    The prizewinner is Anthony Capolla, whose case is more complicated. He's running in the 38th district in Bergen County, one of the few swing districts in the state.

    Capolla, 41, is a stand-up comic who wrote a book in his late-20s packed with hair-raising insults. He calls gays "fags." He says lesbians are good only for pornography. He calls welfare mothers "whores." Asians and Jews take their knocks as well.

    The book is a testament to equal opportunity bigotry.

    But this one is complicated. Because he sounds horrified himself.

    "I was really into Howard Stern," Capolla says. "I grew up. I'm not the same person. I went and apologized in private to select people, especially my lesbian neighbor. I DJ at gay weddings. I'm not a racist. I'm not a bigot. I know what's in my heart."

    Capolla temporarily withdrew from the race under pressure. But party leaders then discovered it would cost $200,000 to replace all the ballots. So Capolla is now running his campaign as an apology tour.

    "I apologize to my Jewish friends, to the African-American community, to lesbians and gays. I'm trying to think of who else. I offended people who play the flute!"
