‘BRO WITH NO HO’: GOP Senator Caught On Live Mic Joking About Lindsey Graham [AUDIO]

Republican Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk was caught on a live mic telling a Senate colleague that Republican South Carolina senator and presidential candidate Lindsey Graham was a “bro with no ho.”

“I’ve been joking with Lindsey that he doesn’t — did you see that? He’s going to have a rotating first lady,” Kirk said during a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing. “He’s a bro with no ho.” (VIDEO: Lindsey Graham: Caitlyn Jenner Is Welcome In Republican Party)

If elected, Graham would be the first president since 15th president James Buchanan to be a lifelong bachelor. He told the Daily Mail earlier this week that he would have a “rotating” first lady drawn from his friends and his sister.

Huffington Post’s Sam Stein caught and saved the audio:

In a statement to the Huffington Post, Kirk’s office reassured them that he was just “joking around with his colleagues.”
