After being fitted with a microphone prior to a 1994 interview, Hoke made a hand gesture and remarked of a female producer in a fake accent, "She has zee beeega breast." The congressman then turns pale, and says, "We're probably live." While not actually live, it was taped, and the tape got out. It was not his first gaffe. In a 1994 interview, he told Maureen Dowd that he would consider dating Congresswomen Maria Cantwell and Blanche Lincoln, calling them "hot." Hoke was defeated in 1996 by Dennis Kucinich.
