An incoming Democratic congressman who says he will be the first LGBT immigrant to serve in Congress will be swearing on a comic book instead of the Bible for his swearing-in ceremony.

An incoming Democratic congressman who says he will be the first LGBT immigrant to serve in Congress will be swearing on a comic book instead of the Bible for his swearing-in ceremony.

Rep.-elect Robert Garcia is among the hundreds of incoming lawmakers who are still waiting to be sworn in as members of the 118th Congress as debate continues over a vote for speaker of the House of Representatives.

However long the delay, Garcia said Tuesday he will take the oath of office on a copy of the U.S. Constitution, along with a photo of his late parents, a certificate of his U.S. citizenship and the inaugural issue of Superman. 

Garcia tweeted: “Will be proudly sworn-in to Congress on the U.S. Constitution. Underneath the Constitution will be 3 items that mean a lot to me personally. A photo of my parents who I lost to covid, my citizenship certificate & an original Superman #1 from the @librarycongress”.
