Indiana lawmaker apologizes for Girl Scouts slam

Indiana Representative Bob Morris has stated an apology for his Girl Scout remarks.

Late last week, Morris from Fort Wayne wrote a letter to other GOP reps stating the Girl Scouts group promotes homosexuality and abortion, calling it a “radicalized organization.”

Morris also said he would not support the recognition of their 100-year anniversary.

In a newly released letter, he said quote, "I realize now that my words were emotional, reactionary, and inflammatory, for that I sincerely apologize. I certainly should not have painted the entire Girl Scouts organization with such a wide brush."

Although he issued the apology, he still did not sign the resolution honoring the group.
