Rep. Carol Shea-Porter now says she was just using “humor” when she accused men of holding up health care reform. But Florida Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is backing up Carol Shea-Porter’s story that she and Republican female members of Congress claim they could pass health care reform “by the weekend” if they just sent the men home.

“We do have conversations like that in the bathroom,” said Wasserman Schultz on MSNBC today.

However, in a press release Republican women members of Congress claimed Shea-Porter’s story was inaccurate.

“We do not agree with the comments made by Democrat Rep. Carol Shea-Porter that ‘if we sent the men home we could get’ the health care bill done faster, and we can attest that the conversation Congresswoman Shea-Porter claims to be referencing has never taken place with any of us. We are working hard to ensure the American people have their voices heard and understand what this bill holds for their health care future,” said nine Republican woman in a joint statement.

The Republican women are:

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (TN-07)
Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (FL-05)
Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (MO-08)
Rep. Mary Fallin (OK-05)
Rep. Kay Granger (TX-12)
Rep. Cynthia Lummis (WY-01)
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05)
Rep. Candice Miller (MI-10)
Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN-06)

According to WMUR, Shea-Porter is getting serious criticism from her political rivals:
