    He's not that innocent!

    House Minority Whip Eric Cantor ditched the president's prime time speech on Tuesday to attend a Britney Spears concert.

    The Republican reportedly held a fundraiser during the "Circus" tour concert while the whip-toting pop princess strutted her stuff in barely-there leather get-ups at the Verizon Center as Obama spoke across town.

    "If suffering through a Britney Spears concert will raise one more dime to help Republicans take back the House, then next time there should be 100 more members sitting there with Cantor," a source told the Washington Post.

    It's unclear which other politicians attended Brit-Brit's show in which she pranced on stage like "the chief of the stripper police" and fans dressed up in "tarted-up Catholic schoolgirl uniforms," the paper reported.
