Dem Candidate Sat On The Toilet To Let Young Voters Know He's A 'Regular Person'

A Democratic candidate for Congress in Alabama has confirmed that video which surfaced earlier this week of him talking politics on the toilet is real.

YellowHammer posted a YouTube video on Monday of Erick Wright's "Politics on the Throne" -- a two-minute segment on everything from abortion to car window tinting. Wright is mounting a 2014 challenge against Rep. Martha Roby (R).

“What kind of intrusive things do you have to go through just to get an abortion, knowing that it’s your God-given right to do so as an American?” Wright says in the clip.

According to Yellowhammer, Wright removed the video once he announced the run for office. And in a Wednesday phone interview with the Dothan (Ala.) Eagle, he said that was the case, adding that reactions to the clip have been "quite entertaining."

“I posted because most people that are millennials don’t listen to the political rhetoric, and that was my way of reaching some of them, to let them know I am a regular person," Wright told the paper.
