Georgia lawmaker exposes himself, yells racial slurs on Sacha Baron Cohen show

A Georgia lawmaker is facing calls to resign after footage of him yelling racial slurs and exposing himself aired on Sacha Baron Cohen’s new show Sunday night.

In the latest episode of “Who Is America?,” the comedian plays Israeli military expert Erran Morad and enlists state Rep. Jason Spencer (R) to film an “anti-terrorism video.”

In the video, Spencer repeatedly shouts the N-word after Cohen tells him that using the “forbidden” word will help ward off terrorists.

In another clip, Spencer pulls down his pants and chases Cohen with his buttocks exposed, yelling “USA, motherf—–!”

{mosads}Spencer also reportedly gives an offensive impression of a “Chinese tourist” in the episode and stabs a knife into a mannequin wearing a hijab.

Spencer, who recently was defeated in the GOP primary after serving four terms, had threatened legal action against Showtime to prevent the network from airing the footage.

“They exploited my state of mind for profit and notoriety,” Spencer told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week. “This media company’s deceptive and fraudulent behavior is exactly why President Donald Trump was elected.”

Georgia House Speaker David Ralston (R) said in a statement that Spencer’s actions were “reprehensible,” according to the AJC.

“Representative Spencer has disgraced himself and should resign immediately,” Ralston said. “Georgia is better than this.”

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) said he was “saddened and disgusted” by Spencer’s behavior.

Cohen’s new undercover project has already featured a number of GOP figures, including several who were filmed purportedly endorsing a program to arm toddlers with guns. Sunday’s episode also featured former Vice President Dick Cheney signing a “waterboard kit.”
