Esther 3:5, Question 2. Why does the verse repeat that Mordechai did not bow?

The Alshich writes that Mordechai did not bow despite the fact that Haman removed the idol he was wearing. Therefore, Mordechai no longer had the excuse that he could not bow for religious reasons, and yet he still refused to bow.
