Florida Lawmaker Rails Against A ‘Crazy’ Dildo Ban In Texas

February 6, 2015 7:26 a.m.

A Florida Democrat who has been on a bizarre anti-Texas crusade this week went off on an unexpected tangent Thursday: the state’s former law on sex toys.

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) first went off on the Lone Star state Monday in a House Rules Committee hearing for refusing to accept Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. He called it a “crazy state” that he wouldn’t live in “for all the tea in China,” angering Texas Rep. Michael Burgess (R).

Burgess demanded an apology, but Hastings said he’d oblige “when hell freezes over.”

When CNN’s Dana Bash caught up with Hastings on Thursday, he stuck to his guns.

“Evidently, I touched a nerve deep in the heart of Texas,” Hastings told Bash. “And I would ask them to tie a yellow rose around it and do like ‘Frozen’ and ‘Let It Go.'”

The Florida Democrat then cited an old Texas law regulating sex toys to further his argument that the state was “crazy.”

“One of their cities have a law that says women can only have six dildos and the certain size of the thing,” Hastings said. “And if that ain’t crazy, I don’t know what is.”

The dildo ban, which Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) defended as state attorney general, actually was overturned in 2008.
