Update: West Claims To Have Apologized, But Wasserman-Schultz Says Not True

Following Rep. Allen West’s (R-FL) tirade yesterday against Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), the Tea Party Republican told the Huffington Post that he had “just apologized” to his fellow Floridian this afternoon. Wasserman Schultz told CNN this afternoon, however, that reports of West apologizing to her were “absolutely untrue.” Watch it:

West’s spokeswoman Angela Sachitano called reports of the congressman’s apology “absolutely false.” In fact, West was “waiting on an apology from the Congresswoman,” said Sachitano, for a remark Wasserman Schultz made last year. The Huffington Post is standing by its initial report of West’s apology.
