Florida Democrat: 'Hillary is Under No Illusions That You Want to Have Sex With Her'

A Florida Democrat running for Congress was caught on tape saying that Hillary Clinton "is under no illusions that you want to have sex with her," according to the Miami Herald.

The comment from Joe Garcia, a former congressman attempting to regain his seat, came during an attempt to explain how Clinton reminds him of former President Lyndon Johnson.

"As somebody who studies history, she's going to be very similar to Lyndon Johnson," said Garcia. "Lyndon Johnson wasn't a particularly charming man, wasn't a particularly nice man: He would ask you nice, and then when you didn't do it, he made you do it."

Garcia then went on to insult not only Clinton's sex appeal, but also her intellect.

"Hillary is under no illusions that you want to have sex with her, or that she's going to seduce you, or out-think you," he said.

Garcia said that he didn't "want to be offensive to women."

Republicans pounced on Garcia, saying that it is "disgusting that Joe Garcia would describe Hillary Clinton's qualifications to serve as president in terms of whether or not he would have sexual relations with her."

"It's time for national Democrats to answer whether they are going to support a sexist candidate like Joe Garcia who would say such sexually disparaging things about the first-ever female Democratic nominee for President of the United States," said National Republican Congressional Committee spokeswoman Katie Martin in a statement to the Herald.

Garcia has since apologized for his "poorly worded comment."

"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."
