Teen Leaning Toward Not Apologizing To Brownback

KSCB News - November 27, 2011 9:44 am

A Kansas teenager whose disparaging tweet about Gov. Sam Brownback drew national attention says she has gone from 61 followers on her Twitter account to more than 1,400.

Emma Sullivan says she’s now leaning against sending a letter of apology to the governor’s office because of all the support she’s getting.

Sullivan was in Topeka on Monday as part of a Kansas Youth in Government program when she posted an insult about Brownback on her Twitter page. Someone in the governor’s office flagged the tweet and reported it to event organizers, and her principal ordered her to apologize in writing.

Since the story was reported in the media, Sullivan says she heard from people all across the country, and most of them are supportive.
