A source, who said he believed he was familiar with the material Republican Senate Leader Hugh Scott said contradicted Dean, suggested that Scott may have been mistaken. Scott strongly denied Wednesday that he was mistaken. “What I said to you is the truth and what is attributed to the faceless source is false,” Scott told reporters.
