Opening day of the 2010 Legislative session included one lawmaker making an apology on the House floor.
Rep. Paul Gardner, DFL-Shorview, ruffled some feathers last session when he made Twitter comments about two GOP legislators. The offended Republicans filed an ethics complaint. Gardner offered personal apologies last spring. He did it again today before the full House.
“In May of last year I made some unkind, disrespectful remarks about two of my colleagues on the social networking tool Twitter,” Garnder said. “And I would like to apologize to them today, and thank you for your attention.”
