Virginia Republican U.S. Rep. Denver Riggleman discussed “horse fisting” in a pre-congressional radio interview, according to audio obtained by NATIONAL FILE. The interview is from the April 24, 2015 broadcast of “100 Proof Radio Show.” The term “horse fisting” refers to an act of bestiality with a horse.
“Yet again we cross the horse fisting threshold and it’s because Tanya brings it up,” said the host of the show. “It’s a fantastic thing.”
“It is, and you know my family is from West Virginia and you guys are Kentucky so I think we can talk about that at length,” Riggleman said, referring to horse fisting. Riggleman repeatedly referred to horse fisting after the host used the term “anal retentiveness” and said his co-host was “behind us.”
Riggleman, who was elected in 2018, is facing a challenge from Liberty University employee Bob Good for the Virginia GOP nomination in the 5th District, after Riggleman condemned President Donald Trump’s effort to declare a national emergency to build the southern border Wall. Riggleman, who also garnered criticism for officiating a same-sex marriage, called Trump a “buffoon” in 2016 and opted not to vote for Trump in the presidential election.
