Governor accidentally calls his No. 2 a ‘sex star’
While introducing him at a childhood literacy event in Denver Wednesday, the governor mistakenly referred to Mr. Garcia as a “rising sex star.”
Mr. Hickenlooper routinely introduces Mr. Garcia as a “rising star” and a “rock star” at public events. The Democrat immediately caught his slip that was caught by KOA radio and reported Thursday by the Denver Post.
According to the tape, Mr. Hickenlooper said, “Now I get to introduce that rising sex star … symbol. I mean, symbol — not star.”
After some awkward laughter, he panned that it might go down as one of his most difficult press conferences.
