Rep. Joe Garcia caught on camera picking his ear and eating it
WASHINGTON, May 14 (UPI) –
A Florida congressman who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2012 was caught on camera last week doing something that might have people picking differently when he runs for re-election.
Rep. Joe Garcia was at a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week when a C-SPAN camera appeared to capture him picking his ear and then eating what he had dug out.
In the clip, Garcia appears to look back down at this finger and then go back for seconds while Rep. Suzan DeIbene was speaking.
After getting some grief about the video, Garcia took to Twitter and blamed the whole thing on a hangnail.
A congressman picking his ear,
On camera so it does appear;
He picked some foul stuff,
If that ain’t enough,
He ate it without any fear.
A camera picked up his gross action,
To the congressman’s dissatisfaction,
It went on the air,
But he didn’t care,
About his constituent’s reaction.
Is that guy concerned about wax,
Or some legislative facts?
He went back for more,
While a speech he ignored,
Is he just a political hack?
He’s trying to get re-elected,
Even though he was detected;
Having a lick,
Of ear wax he picked,
Let’s hope that he isn’t selected.
