Kentucky Governor Apologizes for Associating Teacher Protests with Child Sexual Assault

However, he now takes back the tasteless comparison in a Facebook post: "It is my responsibility to represent you, not only when I'm speaking to you but also when I'm speaking on your behalf".

Bevin said on Friday that single-parent households in the state had been forced to leave children at home and in peril of not just sexual assault, but of ingesting poison or being offered drugs for the first time.

At a video statement on Sunday, Bevin stated: & "I'm sorry each of youpersonally, that has been hurt by things I't explained".

Kentucky's Republican-majority House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution on Saturday criticizing the governor's comments, and the Republican state Senate president said Bevin should apologize, according to local media. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children".

Two days after Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin said he "guaranteed" children were sexually assaulted because of teacher protests, he posted a video saying people misunderstood what he was trying to say.

Kentucky legislators voted Friday to override Bevin's veto of a state funding which increased training funding by way of a $480 million tax increase.

Pep Guardiola believes that Manchester City will grow in stature after he secured his first Premier League title with the club. The dominant start was rewarded when City took the lead in the 22nd in a manner not out of the usual Guardiola playbook.

"Clearly, a tremendous number of people did not fully appreciate what it was that I was communicating", Bevin said, referring to his earlier comments.

"I apologize for those who have been hurt by the things that were said...it was not my intent".

"And so the extent that I try this effectively, nice". And to the times when I don't do it well, that's on me.

Melanie Conklin, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, said Bevin's comments were "awful" and that Bevin and Gov. Scott Walker had both proposed major cuts to public education. That's not much of an apology. 'But it still wasn't an apology. It was nonetheless him defending his phrases. Everyone heard his words.

"I think the focus for us is going to be on what we're doing here in the state of Wisconsin". "If anyone asks me for my advice, I would say that they should come out and make a statement, either clarifying it or being apologetic and getting the statement behind them".
