Dick Durbin Stands By House GOP Quote

AP

Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) is sticking with his story that a House GOP leader told President Obama “I cannot even stand to look at you” during a meeting over the federal government shutdown earlier this month.

“Senator Durbin stands by his comments,” Max Gleicshman, Durbin’s spokesperson, told TPM in an email.

The White House and House leadership both denied that the incident took place.
