Source – A Republican candidate running for a state Senate seat in Maine has been forced to defend amusing video footage of himself dancing around in Speedos to Samba music. Eric Brakey, 24, has been attacked by Mike Hein, a former employee of the Christian Civic League, who circulated the video and described Brakey as looking like ‘a demon possessed.’ But Brakey laughed off the jibes on Tuesday, pointing to his past as a professional actor and saying that the outtake was from ‘comedy piece’ commercial for a soft drink made in 2011. ’It shows that I’m a full human being with more experience than just working in politics,’ Brakey told the Portland Press Herald. ’I think that’s something that people want. It shows I’m not just a career politician. … I’m a professional actor,’ said Brakey, who works as Chairman for the Defense of Liberty PAC campaigning on libertarian causes.
Shit just got real in the Maine Senate race. Like you know the gloves have come off when people are throwing around speedo dancing videos into the mix. As a sidenote this has to be unintentionally the most perfect line for a politician in the history of politicians right?
“It shows that I’m a full human being with more experience than just working in politics,’ It shows I’m not just a career politician. … I’m a professional actor”
Of course you’re a professional actor dude. You’re in politics.
