Sen. Carl Marcellino, a regular poster on Twitter, retweeted a joke list Wednesday that Democrats called possibly inappropriate.

Marcellino (R-Syosset), known as @Senator98 on Twitter, retweeted a post headlined “12 Things Men Do Differently to Women.”

“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.
