A United States politician has resigned from the Georgia house of representatives after appearing on Sacha Baron Cohen's TV mockumentary Who Is America?

Spencer, a Republican who has served in the Georgia House of Representatives since 2011, said in a one-sentence email to House Speaker David Ralston that he had chose to step down.

Legislators were reportedly considering ways to reprimand him after his appearance on Sunday night's episode of "Who Is America?" on Showtime. The lawmaker is told they're making a counterterrorism video.

He agreed to demonstrate the tactic by dropping his trousers and underpants and backing into Cohen while shouting "USA!" and "America!".

He lost a Republican primary for his seat on May 22, but he could have remained in public office through to the November election.

In a statement, Spencer said he had received countless death threats after he introduced legislation in 2016 in an attempt to ban burqas.

In a statement on Monday, Mr Spencer apologised for the "ridiculously ugly episode" but initially refused to step down.

Mr Ralston and others called for his immediate resignation after the show aired. Cohen told Spencer the move would incite fear in homophobic jihadists.

The office of the Speaker of Georgia's House of Representatives told the Washington Post on Wednesday (July 25) that Spencer has submitted his resignation, effective from July 31.

In a second section called "How to stop a kidnapping" Mr Spencer loudly shouted the n-word several times to "attract attention".
