Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback apologized Monday for his staff's "overreaction" to a schoolgirl's tweet during her visit to the state Capitol, according to CNN.
Eighteen-year-old Emma Sullivan said that her school principal told her she needed to write an apology to the governor after one of his staffers had complained. The deadline for the apology essay was Monday, but instead the school released a statement stating that "she is not required to write a letter of apology to the governor."
According to the Kansas City Star, Sullivan's tweet said, "Just made mean comments at gov. brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot."
However, Sullivan said she didn't actually make such comments and that it was "joking around."
