Congressman James Clyburn apparently has no idea what sexting means.

If you weren't watching C-SPAN over Labor Day weekend, (and let's be honest, who wasn't?) you might have missed Congressman Clyburn, a Democrat from South Carolina, speaking about possible ways people can force change in Ferguson, Missouri.

His recommendation: sext.

We can only assume the he thinks "sexting" is the present progressive tense for the word "text," because the only political change sexting can cause is a change in a politician's future ... and that's generally a negative one. But if a politician finds himself in the midst of a sexting scandal, this is the one to be in.
