Rep. Mike Coffman Won’t Explain His ‘Birther’ Remarks About Pres. Obama
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) made headlines earlier this month after he was caught on tape saying that President Obama is “not an American.” The Congressman quickly apologized for his statements and then went into hiding, avoiding public events and ignoring media requests for interviews.
But this week, a reporter from a local NBC affiliate met up with Coffman after a closed door meeting and pressed him on the story. Looking visibly uncomfortable, Coffman maintained his calm and repeated, “I stand by my statement that I misspoke and I apologize” five times to five different questions.
