Rep. Chuy Garcia (D-IL) deflected the blame for a profane late-evening Friday tweet on to one of his staffers.

Garcia deleted two tweets from Friday relating to the incident. The initially tweet was not the offending one allegedly published by the staffer, but somewhat the tweet that sparked the back again and forth, which contained his belief about an assault-fashion weapons ban.

“In no way even read of this dude and I will not likely comply even if his silly legislation passes,” just one consumer replied in a quotation tweet.


“You are borderline retarded ya f***ing dips***,” Garcia’s Twitter account responded in the late hours of Friday evening.

“Did I make the worthless minimal congressman upset?” the critic responded minutes later.

Fabiola Rodriguez-Ciampoli, a spokesman for Garcia, confident the congressman’s followers that the tweet was “unauthorized.”

“Final night time a member of Congressman Garcia’s staff members posted an unauthorized tweet from the Congressman’s account utilizing profanities and offensive language to men and women dwelling with disabilities. The language used was certainly inappropriate and inconsistent with Congressman Garcia’s historical past,” the statement study. “The particular person responsible will be held accountable and correct disciplinary motion will be taken.”

The very first-phrase congressman is up for reelection in Illinois’s 4th Congressional District. Garcia was the only Democratic prospect in the primary election, and he will encounter just one Republican candidate and a single Operating Course Party prospect on Nov. 8.
