ATLANTA (AP) – A Georgia lawmaker is seen using racial slurs and dropping his pants in an episode of Sasha Baron Cohen’s Showtime series “Who Is America?”.
In Sunday night’s broadcast, Republican Rep. Jason Spencer of Woodbine repeatedly uses a racial slur for African Americans and later exposes his bottom after being told it helps scare away Muslim terrorists.
Spencer lost in the May primary but his term doesn’t end until his replacement takes over after the November election. But The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia House Speaker David Ralston has called for Spencer to resign.
The newspaper reports Spencer had earlier threatened legal action to prevent the network from airing footage of him.
In a statement Monday, Spencer apologized for the “ridiculously ugly episode” but he refused to step down from office
