Mark Kelly campaign spokesman T.J. L’Heureux is apologizing for calling police “worthless f*cking pigs” in August 2020, the Washington Times reported.
L’Heureux hurled the insult after watching “Chicago police clashing with protesters,” the Times reported.
The insult was made in an August 17, 2020, tweet, which L’Heureux has since deleted but which the Washington Free Beacon published.
“Chicago Police you worthless fucking pigs,” L’Heureux’s tweet read.
L’Heureux joined Kelly’s campaign about a week after sending the text.
“I deeply regret my comment and apologize for what I wrote — I was wrong,” L’Heureux told the Arizona Republic. “My comment does not reflect who I am or what I believe, and most importantly, it is not representative of what this campaign stands for. The language I used and the sentiment I conveyed do not belong in our political process, which is why I have deleted the tweet.”
Kelly is a pro-gun control Democrat
