Texas State Representative Gene Wu (D) issued a series of apologies acknowledging the "tasteless" nature of an earlier tweet about Dick Cheney's history of heart disease on Monday.

Houston Chronicle reporter Kolten Parker took a screenshot of the tweet before it was removed:

Wu apologized on Twitter, saying he made a mistake by linking Cheney's heart health to the abortion debate.

Cheney has had a long history of heart problems, including five heart attacks, and received a heart transplant last summer.
