Spokesman Fired for Tweeting 'Me Likey Broke Girls' from Congressman's Account (Video)

A spokesman for Republican Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador has been dismissed after mistakenly tweeting a response to a sexy Super Bowl ad for CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls from his boss' account, according to a report in the Idaho Statesman.

"Me likey Broke Girls," wrote Phil Hardy after seeing the show's stars, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, eat diner food seductively and hang from a stripper pole in skimpy waitress outfits.

The tweet came down 14 seconds later -- not long enough to prevent it from being captured and circulated throughout the Internet.

Labrador's district director, Jake Ball, tells the Statesman that he made the call to fire Hardy, who had worked for him since 2010. Before his foray into politics, he previously worked with heavy metal acts in the music industry, the Statesman reports.

"That's Raul's call," Ball said, adding that it was Labrador himself who gave Hardy the news.
