HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Republican leaders in Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives are calling for one of their members to resign after a newspaper disclosed the existence of videos in which he encourages his 5-year-old son to draw from a cigar and use profane language.

House Republican leaders said they are “disgusted” by the conduct of second-term Rep. Aaron Bernstine of Lawrence County.

The existence of the videos on a since-deleted Snapchat account was disclosed by the Beaver County Times.

In a video posted to Twitter on Thursday, Bernstine apologized, calling them jokes that went too far. He also said he intended to keep running for another term in the Nov. 3 election.
