Jason Spencer, the Georgia State GOP representative who appeared on Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Who Is America” on Sunday night, has resigned. One could say he was caught with his pants down.
The disgraced representative had already been defeated in his primary and was set to leave office in November when footage aired of him on the notorious new Showtime program doing a series of antics that included taking off his pants and underwear, screaming racist slurs including the N-word, and taking a lesson in taking up-skirt photos of Muslim women in religious garments.
Spencer, whose language and behavior, besides being vilely hateful, was also ridiculous, resigned from the Georgia State House of Representatives late on Tuesday night, the Washington Post learned. Spencer resigned after pressure from both Democrats and Republicans.
Here’s hoping “Who Is America” is a slow-burning plan to oust racist and ignorant lawmakers from office one by one, with only a few more naked butts on display.
