Idaho Rep. Vito Barbieri will forever be known as “Wrong Hole Vito” after he questioned a physician during a House State Affairs Committee hearing Monday.
Legislators were considering a bill to ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication via telemidicine. According to published AP reports, Barbieri asked Dr. Julie Madsen if doctors could conduct a remote gynecological exam by having a woman swallow a small camera.
The doctor replied that swallowed pills (or cameras apparently) do not end up in the vagina. “Wrong Hole Vito” joined a dozen other republicans to approve the bill banning the pills.
According to news reports, Barbieri sits on the board of a crisis pregnancy center in northern Idaho.
