Even though the White House petition to deport Justin Bieber has already met its threshold of 100,000 signatures, Sen. Mark Warner said Tuesday he wanted to add his name to the list.
Warner repetaedly insisted that he had previously not known about the petition but would be willing to add his name.
“As a dad with three daughters, is there some place I can sign?” Warner said in an interview with Rumble in the Morning.
Warner then tweeted a link to the interview, noting that he was definitely not a Belieber.
More than 240,000 people have already signed the petition to deport the Canadian pop star, who was arrested in Florida on charges of a DUI and resisting arrest.
Opposing petitions to keep Bieber in the country have yet to reach the 100,000-signature threshold.
According to a 2013 survey from Public Policy Polling, working to deport Bieber is a smart move for someone running for reelection. The survey showed that 54 percent of voting-age Americans held an unfavorable view of the pop star.
