LANSING, Mich. (AP) (1/15/2020) - A Michigan lawmaker has apologized after telling a young female reporter that a group of high school boys could “have a lot of fun” with her.

State Sen. Pete Lucido, a Republican from Macomb County's Shelby Township, issued a statement Wednesday addressing the incident that occurred outside the Senate chamber Tuesday.

Lucido referred to a group gathered nearby from an all-boys Catholic high school and told a 22-year-old reporter from Michigan Advance: “You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you."
