"We are now in recess and I have been instructed by Al Carlson that I am not allowed to Tweet things that are happening on the floor. #nazi"
Haak later apologized in person to Carlson, apologized on Twitter and made a statement in the House this morning.
"I apologize. Moreover I`m sorry for any and all remarks that I have made that have misrepresented the character or views of my colleagues this has been nor will it ever be my intention," she said.
"Ninety-four of us get to make laws for the other 700,000. And every day we need to have that as our utmost goal. And we can`t let personalities get in the way of policy. So the comments are well taken and accepted. But we need to make sure we do our job, we pay attention to the issues at hand and make sure we always remember the best interest of our citizens when we vote. And if we keep that in mind, we will never have to have these discussions again," Carlson said.
