Richmond, Virginia School Superintendent Jason Kamras accepted the “heartfelt” apology by 2019 National Teacher of the Year Rodney Robinson for calling for the beating of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Robinson later said he meant the comment as a joke. Kamras did not indicate whether Robinson will face any repercussions.
“Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.”
Kamras, who was 2005 National Teacher of the Year, posted to Twitter on Thursday, “RPS doesn’t condone violence of any kind. Period. Thank you to @RodRobinsonRVA for this heartfelt apology. Words matter – across the political spectrum.”
Robinson has since made his Twitter account private on Wednesday evening after being called out for the McConnell tweet. He posted an apology to Medium on Thursday that was accepted Kamras.
