In a new Funny or Die video, out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson plays a congressional candidate of the kind photographed wearing sweater vests with Rick Santorum.
"I shouldn't have to hide who I am," Frank Jenkowski says in a faux news interview, pointing out that he is openly redheaded. He claims to be born that way.
Jenkowski talks about hiding who he is, faces off with some Westboro-like protesters, and endures criticism of his policy agenda from a Fox News contributor.
