“Scandal Plagued Former Congressman” Steps In It Again

Joe Garcia, the Democratic candidate in Florida’ 26th District, has prompted outrage once again—this time with sexist remarks about Hillary Clinton.

The Miami Herald reported about a secret recording of Garcia telling a group of men, “Hillary is under no illusions that you want to have sex with her, or that she’s going to seduce you, or out-think you.”

With Garcia’s latest gaffe, its no wonder even the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee called him a “scandal plagued former Congressman” and has not included him in their list of competitive races. Earlier this year, Steny Hoyer begged Garcia to stay out of the primary and the DCCC failed to push their favored candidate to victory.

Stay tuned as this likely won’t be the last time Garcia makes controversial remarks or embarrasses himself on the campaign trail. Whether it’s his two cases of campaign fraud, saying “communism works,” or eating his own earwax at a congressional hearing, Garcia is a proven failed candidate.
