ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia lawmaker is the latest public figure caught with his pants down on provocateur Sacha Baron Cohen's new cable TV series, this time literally, as the state legislator exposes his bottom, speaks with a mock Asian accent and yells a racial slur all in the name of fighting terrorism. In Sunday night's broadcast of Cohen's Showtime series "Who Is America?" Cohen poses as an Israeli military expert who persuades Republican Rep. Jason Spencer to take part in several outlandish exercises. The lawmaker is told they're making a counterterrorism video. Spencer repeatedly shouts a racial slur for black people after Cohen tells him the tactic is useful for drawing bystanders' attention to an unfolding attack. He also drops his pants, then his underwear, before backing his exposed rear end toward Cohen while shouting "USA!" and "America!"

In Sunday night's broadcast of Cohen's Showtime series "Who Is America?," Cohen plays an Israeli military expert and told Republican Rep.

Hannah Sparling and Carol Motsinger Cincinnati Enquirer Published 11:11 p.m. UTC Jun 11, 2018 On Tuesday, people in Anderson Township will be mad – all because a school committee is supposed to make a recommendation. The branding committee will say that Anderson High School should drop its Redskins mascot, and those in favor of the name will be mad. Or, the committee will recommend keeping the name, and the other side will be mad. The school just east of Cincinnati is ground zero for the debate over whether it’s OK to use Native American mascots and logos. It’s a nationwide battle, but Ohio – a state where such mascots abound – is right at the center. To those in favor of dropping the mascots, particularly at schools using Redskins, the argument is simple. It’s offensive. “Redskin” is a racial slur. People aren’t mascots.
