A Ron Paul inspired linguistics question

Ron Paul's response to the racist, homophobic, and generally disgusting filth that was published under his name was, "I have publicly taken moral responsibility for not paying closer attention to what went out under my name."

I've been puzzling over that statement.  What, exactly, does it mean?

Am I missing something, or does "I take moral responsibility" actually mean, "I deny moral responsibility?"
