The Louisiana congressman who made a crude joke about a photo of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway on her knees on an Oval Office sofa apologized to her Sunday.

Rep. Cedric Richmond made the comment last week at a Washington dinner televised by CSPAN.

“I really just want to know what was going on there, because, you know, I won’t tell anybody,” Richmond said. “And you can just explain to me that circumstance — because she really looked kind of familiar in that position there. Don’t answer — and I don’t want you to refer back to the 1990s.”

Richmond did keep it bi-partisan. The 1990s comment alluded to President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office.

Richmond later released an apology:

“After a discussion with people I know and trust, I understand the way my remarks have been received by many. I have consistently been a champion for women and women’s issues, and because of that the last thing I would want to ever do is utter words that would hurt or demean them. I apologize to Kellyanne Conway and everyone who has found my comments to be offensive.”

Few found his comment to be in good taste.

Chelsea Clinton also tweeted her opinion.

The Washington Press Club Foundation’s congressional dinner, where Richmond made the remark, is attended by journalists and politicians. Many performed stand-up routines, including Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who joked that “a whole lot worse” had happened on the couch.

Richmond said his joke was an attempt to “one-up” Scott.
