    MEREDITH, N.H. - Sen. John McCain's 95-year-old mother, in a swipe at her son's rival Mitt Romney, said that Mormons were to blame for the scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.

    During an appearance Friday on MSNBC, Roberta McCain criticized Romney's Mormon faith and his time in Salt Lake City.

    "As far as the Salt Lake City thing, he's a Mormon and the Mormons of Salt Lake City had caused that scandal," Roberta McCain said.




    McCain, R-Ariz., quickly stepped in: "The views of my mother's are not necessarily the views of mine."

    The Salt Lake Organizing Committee had enticed International Olympics officials with lavish gifts and accusations of bribery mired the Games in scandal.

    After Utah officials tapped Romney to lead the committee he pared the budget, boosted revenues and worked to repair the committee's reputation.

    Roberta McCain immediately apologized to her son.

    "I didn't mean to say it," she said as they stepped away from the cameras.
