Sen. James Inhofe's office fired back Wednesday in response to a Twitter posting by environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Tuesday that accused the Oklahoma Republican of being "big oil's top call girl," Politico reports.

Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey wasn’t too impressed with the tweet, saying it was inappropriate during a week in which radio talk show star Rush Limbaugh is taking heat for his comments about a Georgetown University law student.

  "It's hard to believe that Robert Kennedy Jr. would choose to use such language, especially this week," he told Politico. "I bet he now regrets it."

Kennedy went after Inhofe for a letter the Oklahoma Republican wrote last week to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson challenging the Obama administration's fuel economy and air pollution policies, Politico reports.

"Speaking of prostitutes, big oil's top call girl, Sen Inhofe, wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers," the posting stated.

Kennedy told Politico that he stands by his words. "I think it's an opportunity for Americans to compare the relative moral positions of the two acts in question and which is more harmful to our country,” he said. “In Sen. Inhofe's case, here's a U.S. senator whose job is to serve the American public who has made a clear and unambiguous choice to serve the moneyed interests of oil companies.”
