US lawmaker resigns after exposing his buttocks on live comedy show

 

A US state lawmaker is resigning after a humiliating appearance on comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s television show during which he exposed himself and shouted racial slurs.

Jason Spencer, a Republican member of the Georgia House of Representatives, had been under pressure from his own party to step down following the embarrassing appearance on Cohen’s series “Who Is America?”

Spencer, 43, finally announced on Wednesday that he planned to resign on July 31. He had already lost a primary in May but he could have remained in office until November.

Spencer was one of several Republican figures pranked by Cohen on the Showtime series.

Others included former vice president Dick Cheney, who signed a “waterboarding kit” and former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

In the episode of “Who Is America” with Spencer, Cohen pretends to be an Israeli anti-terrorism expert, Colonel Erran Morad, offering self-defense training.

At one point, Spencer is persuaded to expose his buttocks and chase Cohen while yelling “USA” and racial slurs.

Spencer, in a statement this week to The Washington Post, said Cohen “took advantage of my paralyzing fear that my family would be attacked.”

Spencer told the Post he had received death threats after introducing a bill that would ban Muslim women from publicly wearing burqas.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, denounced the show as “evil, exploitive, sick ‘humor.'”
