American Crossroads, GOP-aligned super PAC founded by Karl Rove, apologized for a tweet Monday morning suggesting that alcohol was involved in the hit-and-run incidents Sunday involving Secretary of Commerce John Bryson.
"How does @CommerceSec have 3 car crashes in 5 minutes and alcohol NOT be involved? #Skills," tweeted Crossroads. (Here's a screenshot from Center For American Progress Communications Director Josh Dorner.)
American Crossroads took it down -- at about the same time the Commerce Department said he had suffered a seizure, according to ABC News -- and apologized:
Bryson was cited for felony-hit-and-run in two car crashes that took place Saturday in the Los Angeles area. He has not been charged with a crime. Bryson was found unconscious in his car and taken to a hospital for injuries.
The Commerce Department said Monday that he had suffered a seizure and has since returned to Washington.
