Democratic Florida Rep. Joe Garcia appeared to pick something out of his ear and then eat it on live TV last week.

During a House Judiciary Committee markup broadcast live on C-SPAN May 7, Garcia blatantly stuck a finger in his ear, picked at it, examined his catch, and then ate it.

In another questionable Joe Garcia TV decision, his campaign released an ad this week featuring a cameo by a politician arrested on public corruption charges last summer. The ad, which focused on the first-term Democrat’s opposition to the tea party, shows Garcia hanging out with former Homestead mayor Steve Bateman, who is due to appear in court on Thursday for his next hearing.
