In a major display of sarcasm, the LGBT community apologized to resigned Minnesota Senate Leader Amy Koch (R) for ruining the institution of marriage and causing her to have an affair with a staffer.

According to the Minnesota City Pages blog, a man by the name of John Medeiros sent the letter this week "On behalf of all gay and lesbian Minnesotans" after Koch left office and apologized for her actions.

"On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community's successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage," he wrote. "We are ashamed of ourselves for causing you to have what the media refers to as an 'illicit affair' with your staffer, and we also extend our deepest apologies to him and to his wife."

He added: "These recent events have made it quite clear that our gay and lesbian tactics have gone too far, affecting even the most respectful of our society."

Koch and her fellow Republicans campaigned this year to try and put a constitutional amendment of defining marriage between a man and a woman on next year's ballot in Minnesota.
