Colbert Teases Garamendi About Not Living in 10th District
As part of the Colbert Report's 435-part series "Better Know A District," Stephen Colbert interviewed East Bay Rep. John Garamendi Wednesday night.
The talk show host repeatedly ribbed Garamendi for not living in his own 10th District. Garamendi has long maintained his front yard resides in the district, but not his home, which is situated in the 3rd District.
"The tenth is a nice place, but you wouldn't want to live there," Colbert said. "That's what you're telling your constituents." Colbert then mocked Garamendi with either a high-falutin New England Brahmin voice or a British Lord.
Colbert also proposed marriage, but Garamendi declined. "You're not my type," he said.
