The Republican Committee chairman responsible for a 9/11 parade float in Indiana, that featured a depiction of the twin towers with billowing smoke, defended the reminder of the attacks after outraged critics called it 'tasteless' and 'disrespectful.'

Mike Simpson, the chairman of the Porter County Republican Party, said the float was intended as a 'tribute' to 2,977 killed on 9/11.

'I think we hit it spot on,' Simpson told a Wisconsin newspaper.
