TMZ features creepshot of Rep. Joe Garcia beaching it with thong lady


ThongMiami Congressman Joe Garcia is officially a celebrity, it appears.

The freshman Democrat got a little attention from celebrity gossip website TMZ after it obtained a creepshot pic of the Democrat hanging at the beach with what appears to be a thong-wearing girlfriend.
