Landrieu apologizes to La. health secretary

5 years ago March 02, 2010 Mar 2, 2010 Tuesday, March 02 2010 Tuesday, March 02, 2010 9:50:54 AM CST in News

Sen. Mary Landrieu apologized to Louisiana's health secretary for suggesting that he should leave his post.

A spokesman for Landrieu says the senator called Health and Hospitals Secretary Alan Levine on Monday to apologize.

In an interview with The Associated Press last week, Landrieu said of Levine, "I just think he's wrong, usually morning, noon and night, and as far as I'm concerned, he can go get another job."

Levine is an appointee of Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal.

The comments came as Landrieu, a Democrat, offered her full backing for President Barack Obama's health revamp proposal and complained about Jindal's and Levine's opposition to it.
