VIDEO: Hoffman's Public Apology to Goodwin over Tweet
Sens. Gretchen Hoffman, Barb Goodwin hugged on last day of session.
But I made it personal last year. And to Sen. Goodwin I want to say I'm very sorry from the bottom of my heart. I wish I would have said that sooner to you.
The two share a hug at the end of the clip.
In May 2011, Hoffman tweeted about Goodwin from the floor of the Senate while Goodwin was speaking, with a message that misconstrued what Goodwin said. Another senator filed an ethics complaint, and in June a Senate ethics panel ordered Hoffman to apologize to Goodwin in writing.
