Senator Patrick Brazeau has apologized to Canadian Press reporter Jennifer Ditchburn, Tuesday evening, for attacking her on Twitter.
The battle stemmed from an article Ditchburn wrote claiming that Brazeau — the youngest Senator in the upper chamber — had the worst attendance for this past session of Parliament.
Brazeau, 37, was absent for 25 per cent of the 72 sittings between June 2011 and April 2012, the Senate attendance register shows.
The Conservative senator, according to the article, also missed 65 per cent of meetings at the aboriginal peoples committee on which he sits and 31 per cent of the meetings of the human rights committee, where he is deputy chair.
The Senator, who tangled with Liberal MP Justin Trudeau in a televised charity boxing match in March, took to Twitter to 'defend' himself.
"While u smile Jen, others suffer. Change the D to a B in your last name and we're even! Don't mean it but needs saying," he wrote.
