Colbert Demands Nevada Assemblyman Jim Wheeler 'Punch Himself In The Balls' After Slavery Comments (VIDEO)

Pro-Tip: If you're a politician and someone suggests that you would vote for slavery if that's what your constituents wanted, don't reply to that accusation with, "Yes, I would."

Unfortunately, Nevada Assemblyman Jim Wheeler didn't get the memo on that one.

But Stephen Colbert had to give the man credit for being so committed to the people. In fact, the whole thing gave Colbert a great idea. Wheeler's constituents should test his mettle by starting a petition to have him punch himself in the balls. If it's what the people want...

Watch the clip above and let us know if you'd sign the petition.
