Chapa LaVia Apologizes Twice For Remarks on House Floor


An Illinois lawmaker has apologized… for a second time… for racially-charged remarks on the House floor this week.

 

Democrat Linda Chapa LaVia first appeared to claim that all minorities in the House were on the Democratic side.

 

When reminded of an African-American Republican lawmaker, she said, quote, “We have a half,” an apparent reference to GOP Representative John Anthony’s biracial heritage.

 

Chapa LaVia says she is sorry for what she calls a “personality meltdown.”

 

Republicans say they accept her apology and hope it will lead to more civil debate going forward.
