Senator Vicente Sotto III apologized – sort of – after Kerry Kennedy confirmed on Facebook that her letter urging him to apologize was genuine.

Sen. Sotto said on the Senate floor:
"If it upsets the Kennedy family, then I’m sorry."
Then he proceeded to insult Miguel Syjuco, who had initiated the move to solicit a comment from a Kennedy:
"It appears that the Kennedy family has been misinformed to get them to say something about me."
In an attempt to exculpate himself, Sotto added that “copying is the highest form of flattery.”
