Bishop Trotter wants Quinn, Hendon to apologize
October 26, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A prominent religious leader wants both Governor Pat Quinn and State Senator Rickey Hendon to apologize for comments Hendon made backing Quinn's re-election campaign.
Bishop Larry Trotter of Sweet Holy Spirit Church claimed mudslinging that takes politics into the gutter is inappropriate. He referred to Hendon's charge that State Senator Bill Brady, the republican nominee for governor, is sexist and racist.
"You and I may be on 2 different teams, but we don't have to be ugly about it. It may push toward more voter apathy than if they just dealt with the issues, and left one another alone," said Bishop Trotter.
Bishop Trotter said he will call Senator Hendon to try to persuade him to apologize for his remarks. Hendon did apologize to anyone who was offended by his comments, but he refused to apologize to Brady.
