Former New South Wales state opposition leader John Brogden (R) stands in the back of an elevator following a news conference where he repeated an apology and resigned as leader of the state Liberal party in Sydney August 29, 2005. Brogden, who called the Asian-born wife of his political opponent a "mail-order bride", quit after news of his racist remark became public. Brogden also said he made the racist comment, along with pinching a female reporter on the bottom and propositioning another female reporter after a few beers at a function in Sydney in July.
