On Friday, Republican Sen. Mark Kirk (IL) issued an apology for his remarks regarding his opponent Rep. Tammy Duckworth’s ethnic heritage.
“Sincere apologies to an American hero, Tammy Duckworth, and gratitude for her family’s service,” Kirk said on Twitter.
Twitter users did not accept his apology.

@MarkKirk You can't take back a racist remark by thanking someone for their service. Shame on you. Tammy Duckworth deserves better.

@MarkKirk "When somebody shows you who they are, believe them". You're crystal clear who you are and we're voting you OUT!
