He's Sorry

African-American lawmakers aren’t the only ones miffed by the Supreme Court's Voting Rights Act decision. "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas," wrote Minnesota state Rep. Ryan Winkler, landing himself in hot water for the racial attack on Justice Clarence Thomas. He has since deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
