It is not clear if there was a specific story that Bresnahan doesn't believe or why he was skeptical. But Bresnahan reaffirmed in a follow-up tweet that he didn't believe Gillibrand's version of events.

TPM called and emailed Bresnahan to ask for any clarity he could offer about his remarks. He did not immediately respond.

His comments drew the ire of EMILY's List communications director Jess McIntosh, among others.

UPDATE: 8:45 p.m. ET

Breshanan tweeted an apology later Wednesday night.
