During a meeting of the State Government Committee, Metcalfe responded to being touched on the arm by the committee’s Democratic chairman Matt Bradford (D-Montgomery) with a strong rebuke.
“Look, I am a heterosexual, I have a wife, I love my wife, I don’t like men as you might, but stop touching me all the time,” Metcalfe said.
Metcalfe’s comments were met by awkward laughs by Bradford and others in the meeting.
“If you want to touch somebody, you have people on your side of the aisle that might like it. I don’t,” he continued.
“My intention was to just beg for your permission for about 30 seconds,” Bradford said while laughing.
“Then beg, don’t touch,” Metcalfe interjected.
