Georgia state representative Jason Spencer will step down at the end of the month, a spokesman for House Speaker David Ralston told the Atlanta Journal- Constitution on Tuesday. Cohen asks Spencer to take part in a counterterrorism video.
"I apologize to my family, friends, and the people of my district for this ridiculously ugly episode", Spencer said.
Spencer was pranked into believing that Baron Cohen was an Israeli special forces commando who was teaching him a number of techniques to defend against terrorists.
Spencer told Cohen's character, "I don't call it a burqa ban, I call it an anti-masking statute".
Spencer is the latest in a long line of high-profile figures to get duped by Cohen's antics in his movies and various television shows, such as Borat and Da Ali G Show.
