Hero Allen West Responds to Request to Apologize: “Not a Chance – You’ll Get the Same Response Tomorrow” (VIdeo)
Hero Rep. Allen West told FOX News anchor Martha MacCallum today that there was “not a chance” that he would apologize to DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for a heated email he sent her this week after she attacked him on the House floor.

Fox News reported the latest on the spat.
Rep. Allen West dug in his heels after congressional Democrats called on him to apologize for a heated email he sent to the Democratic Party chairwoman, adamantly denying reports that he had already done so.
West claims he was in his right to send fellow Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz an email Tuesday calling her “vile” and “not a lady,” in response to her criticism of him on the House floor.
“Don’t poke me in the chest, that’s the bottom line,” he told Fox Business Network on Thursday, adding that an apology is “not happening.”
His aides underscored that response following reports and audio tape that seemingly showed him backing off his original comments. In the tape, West could be heard telling a Huffington Post reporter: “I just apologized.”
It’s unclear what he was referring to — a West aide immediately shot down claims that he had apologized, calling them “absolutely false.” Wasserman Schultz likewise said she had not heard from West.
Both lawmakers claim they are now waiting for an apology from the other.
