Angle campaign denies unprintable insult against a reporter

Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle's week of less-than-glowing media comes to an end with a statement pushing back against this story and the allegation that her campaign blew off a reporter by calling him an "idiot" and something else.

A news account has reported that someone “from the Angle campaign” described as “a campaign spokesperson” for the Sharron Angle U.S. senatorial campaign had used abusive language with a reporter [Thursday] evening during an event in Las Vegas. This is not correct. The official in-state spokesman was not at the event. The person who spoke to the reporter is unknown and is not an employee of the Angle campaign and was in no way authorized to speak on behalf of the Angle campaign.
