The Alamosa County Republicans group out of Colorado on Saturday issued an apology for a Twitter post that included the quote, “Republicans hate poor people,” the Hill reports.

"Out of self-respect– be Republican," the original post read. "Democrats love poor people because they think that poor people will vote Democrat. Republicans hate poor people because they think the dignity of man is above being poor."

The tweet had not been deleted as of early Sunday evening.

"The author acted independently and without the concurrence of any other member of the Alamosa County Republicans," the group posted on Facebook. "The regrettable post was made with the intention of condemning poverty, not persons affected by poverty, and was not meant to insult anyone."

"The author sincerely regrets the post and has offered his resignation from his position with the Alamosa County Republicans, which has been accepted," the post continued. "Actions have consequences."
