Senator Kirk apologizes for “bro with no ho” comment

CHICAGO (AP) – A spokeswoman says U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois has apologized after being caught on a hot mic using a word considered disparaging to women.

Kirk called fellow Republican senator and presidential candidate Lindsey Graham a “bro with no ho.” The remarks were captured Thursday on a live microphone as a Senate panel conducted a roll call vote. The South Carolina senator is a lifelong bachelor who’s recently kidded he could have a “rotating first lady” if elected to the White House.

Kirk spokeswoman Danielle Varallo says it was a joke between friends. In an email, she says Kirk has apologized to anyone offended.

Kirk is seeking re-election. The campaign for potential Democratic challenger, U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth, called the comment “as offensive as it is unfunny.”
