Pelosi demands apology from GOP aide

WASHINGTON, March 22 (UPI) -- House Minority leader, Rep. Nancy Peolosi, D-Calif., has demanded an apology from a GOP spokesman for calling her an appeaser of Saddam Hussein.

Roll Call reported Friday that the top House Democrat wrote to House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., on Thursday requesting that the GOP leader disassociate himself from a statement by his spokesman John Feehery that she has pushed an "appease Saddam Hussein" policy.

At her weekly media briefing, Pelosi chastised Feehery for making the comments in response to a series of questions about the financing of one of her political action committees.

In her letter to Hastert, Pelosi reportedly wrote that such discourse is beneath the Speakers's high office.
