Fmr. Dem. Congressman: “Hillary Is Under No Illusions That You Want To Have Sex With Her”

The Democratic candidate in Florida’ 26th District, Joe Garcia, is in some hot water following sexist remarks directed at Hillary Clinton.

The Miami Herald has produced a video of Garcia saying, “Hillary is under no illusions that you want to have sex with her, or that she’s going to seduce you.”

Garcia made these remarks while speaking before a Key West Democratic campaign office opening; Clinton campaign signs can be seen on the wall behind Garcia.

Garcia quickly issued a statement apologizing for his remarks, “I apologize for my poorly worded comment about Secretary Clinton,” he said. “My comments were intended to speak to Secretary Clinton’s relentless focus on getting the job done, despite the unjust gender stereotypes and biases women in public life are subjected to.”
