UPDATE VI at 12:30pm on 6-19: Barbara Boxer ain’t apologizing.
From Fox News:
Aside from a briefly worded statement about a “friendly” conversation she had with Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh after dressing him down for calling her “ma’am,” Boxer remained silent Friday in the face of growing calls for her to apologize.
When asked whether Boxer would offer an apology, her spokesman, Zachary Coile, referred to a statement released Thursday.
“Senator Boxer called Brigadier General Walsh earlier today. They had a friendly conversation, expressed their respect for each other and talked about how they look forward to working together to protect our communities from natural disasters,” the statement read.
Meanwhile, Boxer’s voicemail box in D.C. is still full, according to commenters on YouTube.
UPDATE V at 9:15pm: Mark Levin weighs in.
UPDATE IV at 8:10pm: Radio talk-show host, Tom Sullivan, reveals how rude and insulting Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh was being before Senator Boxer asked him to call her “Senator” instead of “Ma’am.”
UPDATE III at 10:40am: Just read on the YouTube comment page that Senator Boxer’s voicemail box at her D.C. office is now full. That’s amazing. Hopefully they’re actually listening to the calls and not just deleting them.
Here are the rest of her office numbers:
Los Angeles: (213) 894-5000
Sacramento: (916) 448-2787
San Francisco: (415) 403-0100
Fresno: (559) 497-5109
San Diego: (619) 239-3884
Inland Empire: (909) 888-8525
UPDATE II at 10:25am: Great comment by “mgbinsd” on the YouTube comment page:
Barbara, you can call me boss, since you work for me!
Sincerely, California Voter
UPDATE on 6/18 at 10:08am: Just called Senator Boxer’s office in Washington D.C., and left a message conveying my disappointment in how she treated the Brigadier General. If you want to do the same, her number is (202) 224-3553.
What an awful human being.
