Quinn, Brady Argue Over Who Should Apologize

CHICAGO (AP) – Both major candidates in the race for Illinois governor say the other one should apologize.

Republican Bill Brady continues to call for Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn to apologize for a supporter’s remarks over the weekend.

State Senator Rickey Hendon accused Brady of being racist, sexist and homophobic. He said Brady supports violence against gay people and would take away women’s rights.

Quinn says he doesn’t agree with those remarks, but he won’t apologize for something another person said.

Quinn went further Monday and said Brady owes the people of Illinois an apology. He says Brady has “a sorry record” of voting against raising the minimum wage and proposing budget cuts that would hurt schools.

    Ricky Hendon is a billboard for the black community if THEY don’t remove him from political office.

    Hendon’s comments are OUTRAGEOUS! As a white person, I am APPALLED and HIGHLY OFFENDED! Hendon should be removed from office! Where is Obama on this one? Think he will talk with Hendon this weekend? ha
    I would NEVER vote for someone like Quinn – he only is governor by default. I’d rather have a successful business person run my government, not some whiny union-butt kisse who hides behind racists!

    @Laura Ya. Cause Business People really look out for the best interests of the people. Republicans are the reason for all our current problems and we’ll be handing the reins right back to them next week so the can finish the job of destroying this great country.
