After speaking on Tasmania’s Heart 107.3’s morning show Senator Jacquie Lambie apologized for her comments on Tuesday saying she was trying to hide her embarrassment with a ‘joke’.
43-year-old Lambie (pictured below), who took her seat in parliament earlier this month, admitted on radio that she had not been in a relationship for over a decade, saying: “Now they must have heaps of cash and they’ve got to have a package between their legs, let’s be honest. And I don’t need them to speak; they don’t even need to speak.”
The radio host suggested that they help Lambie find love to which a male caller rang the show saying he believed he meets her criteria adding he had inherited some money and had experience with older women.
“I’m just a bit concerned because you’re so young, I’m not sure you’d be able to handle Jacqui Lambie,” the outspoken politician, who served a decade in Australia’s armed forces, said.
Senator Lambie then continued to ‘check the boxes on her list’ by asking, “Are you well-hung?”
“Like a donkey,” replied the caller who then hung up.
“I have that effect on men,” joked Lambie, who is a member of the Palmer United Party.
The show then continued with the host inquiring about how the senator took care of hairy legs, bikini line and underarms.
“When Kim and Dave on Hobart’s Heart FM 107.3 this morning asked me about my love life in a light hearted segment — I tried to cover up my embarrassment by making a joke,” Lambie said.
“A lot of people laughed, some people may have got offended.”
