“A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man,” reads one joke. One of the jokes contains salty language.

A Marcellino aide confirmed the senator retweeted the jokes, saying “he thought it was funny.”

Democrats had contacted reporters about the tweet, questioning it.
