Rep. Joe Garcia Makes TMZ for Standing Next to Lady in Thong

In a post Anthony Weiner-gate world, does this even count as a scandal? First-term Miami-Dade Congressman Joe Garcia made it onto TMZ's television show last week for the *gasp* controversial act of being in close proximity to a woman wearing a thong while on the beach.

You can watch the video here if you're into a bunch of dudes standing around body snarking some anonymous woman's backside, but here's the photo:

Since TMZ isn't really interested in practicing much in the way of journalism besides landing dumb scoops there's no information as to when or where the photo was taken, or who the woman is besides being identified as "his chick," though for all we know that could be an assumption. In case you're wondering, Garcia is single, so there's no cheating scandal there.

Does a woman's bikini bottom choices really make a political scandal? The National Republican Congressional Committee seems to hope so.

"Looks like Congressman Garcia has a lot in common with 'Thong Song' singer Sisqo who has also had a run in with the law," read an e-mail sent out by NRCC Regional Spokesperson Katie Prill. "Since Sisqo seems unafraid to break the law, maybe Garcia could hire Sisqo to run his re-elect? I mean how else will Garcia pull off a victory if he doesn't have someone on staff who will commit his next illegal scheme to rig the election?"

what does the gop have to do with this as YOU CORRECTLY ACCUSE TMZ OF A "FAULTY CONNECTION"



and then proceed to follow that lead


and dont claim irony as it was just a chance for you to say something negative about the GOP

News Troll!  

media is a FOR PROFIT BUSINESS.

that is why this 'story' is being repeated. 


thanks
thanks

@sweetliberty17761776  if you look at the article, you'll see that the GOP has chosen to make it into a big dumb issue in order to discredit their opponent, which makes so much sense. Here, I'll paste that part of the article if you're too lazy to actually scroll up and read the part after you saw the word "Republican" and  threw a tantrum.
