Illinois State Senator Andy Manar is firing back after a post made on Facebook by the Christian County GOP claimed Manar had voted for a bill that Manar says he actually opposed. Manar calls the action another example of what politics on social media has become.
Manar joined the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show and discussed the post, saying he actually opposed the bill the Christian County GOP claimed he voted for every step of the way.
Manar criticized the post, calling the action “Un-American”.
The Christian County GOP has since retracted the post on Facebook, and posted an apology. The bill in question, SB2814 passed in the Senate last December 32 to 18.
