Rep. Scott DesJarlais, who represents Tennessee’s 4th congressional district, was praised by his constituents on Halloween for his convincing portrayal of the character Uncle Fester from the mid-’60s television show The Addams Family.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” said DesJarlais, who seemed to be annoyed by the many people who were pointing at him and laughing. “I’m not dressed up as anything.”

“Stop. Please stop,” said DesJarlais, who turned and walked away from a crowd of people who gave him a light bulb and asked him to put it in his mouth so they could pose for photos with him.

“This is what I normally look like,” said DesJarlais, visibly flustered. “I can’t help it!”
