Dem Congressman Caught On Camera Picking His Ear, Eating What He Picked Out

WASHINGTON (CBS Tampa) — In what could be compared to the classic “Seinfeld” episode “The Pick,” a Democratic congressman was caught on camera picking his ear and apparently eating what was on his finger.

During a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Rep. Joe Garcia, D-Fla., was caught on camera by C-SPAN picking his ear, then looking at what he picked out and then put the finger up to his mouth, biting down on it.

After initially “eating” what was on his finger, he looked back down at his finger and then ate it again.

This all happened during a hearing about government surveillance programs while Rep. Suzan DeIbene, D-Wash., was speaking.

Earlier this month, Vice President Joe Biden joined Garcia to open up his campaign office in Miami for his re-elected bid.
