After a short-lived last year, U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter focused his efforts on writing a racy TV show, the Detroit News has reported.
McCotter, a Livonia Republican representing Michigan's 11th Congressional District, penned a 42-minute script for "Bumper Sticker: Made On Motown," a racy television comedy pilot, the News reported after a script was leaked to the newspaper by a disgruntled former McCotter staffer.
The show, described by the News as starring "McCotter hosting a crude variety show cast with characters bearing the nicknames of his congressional staffers, his brother and a drunk, perverted 'Black Santa,'" riffs on drinking, sex, race, flatulence, puking and women's anatomy, the report said.
McCotter one year ago to seek the Republican nomination but, citing a lack of media interest, .
His bid for re-election to Congress didn't fare much better.
After 87 percent of McCotter's petition signatures for re-election to Congress , he launched a short-lived write-in campaign in June, but just days later. The cause of the petition discrepancy remains under investigation.
With McCotter out of the face, Milford Republican Kerry Bentivolio now is the only Republican appearing on the ballot, but he will face write-in challenges from Republicans of Novi and of Canton. Democrat of Canton will face LaRouche Democrat of Redford.
McCotter told the News the work wasn't yet finished and was leaked without his permission, and told reporters he didn't write the show on taxpayers' time, but in his garage where he "can smoke."
