(BOISE, ID) — U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador has fired his chief spokesman over a racy message that mistakenly appeared on the Congressman’s official Twitter account. Labrador dismissed Phil Hardy last week. The message appeared for a brief moment before it was deleted. The tweet was in response to a Super Bowl commercial for the CBS show “2 Broke Girls” showing two women dancing around a stripper pole. An Internet archive still cataloged the tweet. Hardy says he forgot to sign out of Labrador’s account before re-posting the same message on his own page.
