CHICAGO (CBS) — An Illinois state senator apologized Sunday night after controversial photos surfaced from a local fundraiser.
The photos, posted online on Friday night, show someone in a mask depicting President Donald Trump, wearing traditional Mexican clothes, and taking part in a mock assassination.
Another photo shows state Sen. Martin Sanodval (D-Chicago) smiling for a picture at the fundraiser.
CBS affiliate WCIA-TV in Champaign reported the fundraiser happened in west suburban Winfield, and a woman at the event posted the photos to her Facebook page while tagging Sandoval in them. WCIA reported it was not clear whether Sandoval knew about the incident at the time it happened.
