Kansas teen won't apologize to governor's office for Twitter post

(CNN) - A high school senior, who faces a Monday morning deadline to apologize to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback for a disparaging tweet, has said she will not write the apology letter.

"I don't think I should write the letter, and I don't think it would be the best move for me," Emma Sullivan, 18, said late Sunday night. "At this time, I do not think an apology would be a sincere thing for me to do."

Sullivan said her parents and many of her peers support her decision.

The teen made national headlines last week for a tweet she said was intended just for her friends.

    Judge a man by his enemys. Some governors have their main enemys as poverty , education, or destroyed infrastructure. This guy can't beat a high school girl, he would have been better off ignoring it.

    I do not know who requested an apology. However, I'm suprised the President has yet to ask ME for one! I would very much like to know what Emma had said...

    FYI – the Gov did not ask for an apology – her HS Principal did on behalf of his school

    If a grown man, a politician can take the heat from one person (teenager or not), then he shouldn't be in politics. Her comments make for feedback of a voter. Screw him for being thin skinned whimpy leader.

    It is the right of every American, including high school students, to express their opinion. No apology necessary.
