First Published Feb 05 2013 11:02 am • Last Updated Feb 05 2013 11:05 am

BOISE, Idaho • U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador’s office says an error by a staffer is to blame for tweet that appeared on the congressman’s account commenting on a sexually provocative television advertisement during the Super Bowl.

The tweet was deleted 14 seconds after it was posted, but is viewable through a website that collects deleted tweets from politicians.

Labrador spokesman Phil Hardy was apparently responsible. The same tweet appeared on his personal account.

The tweet was posted after an ad for the CBS show "2 Broke Girls" and stated: "Me likey Broke Girls. But have never seen their show."

Labrador is a second-term Republican and Mormon, and his office has apologized for the tweet.

It’s not uncommon for politicians to have staff post on messages on their social media accounts.
