Democratic Senator apologizes for Hitler remarks
They say Hamos has shown "egregious disregard" for Illinois' most vulnerable residents. Trotter's remarks drew criticism from the Jewish community Tuesday prompting the Senator to issue a statement of apology.
Trotter says his comments were "inappropriate and wrong", and that he will re-direct his focus on adequately funding Illinois' healthcare for the poor, elderly and disabled. After an appearance at a Capitol hearing on an unrelated matter earlier Tuesday, Hamos declined to comment.
