SC Democrat Congressman recommends ‘Sexting’ to GOTV

South Carolina Democrat Congressman, James Clyburn, recommended  “sexting” as a way to get out the vote in the 2014 midterm election.  I am wondering if Clyburn is getting his campaign advice from former congressman Anthony Wiener.

jamesclyburn_OFAClyburn seemed to confuse basic “texting” with “sexting” — which involves sending sexual messages or photos — during a Labor Day weekend appearance on C-SPAN to promote his new memoir.

Clyburn, 74, told an anguished caller that Americans concerned about the Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin shootings should employ Twitter, Facebook and “sexting” to organize.

“Use the tools that we have,” he encouraged the woman. “We’ve got great tools to communicate about everything else. We can, uh, text. Uh, what do we call it? Sexting. Let’s do some voting, uh, uh, organizing over the internet. We’ve got the tools. Let’s use them for a new massive movement that will make sure that we can have in November 2014 the kind of turnout at the polls that we had, uh, in 2012 in November.”

Although the video is crystal clear, the C-SPAN transcript of the exchange leaves out the congressman’s mention of “sexting.”
