New Controversy - Congressmen Swimming Sea of Galilee
Politico is reporting on a story that we are tracking as a new controversy for several Congressmen. Apparently, while on a "fact-finding" mission last year to Israel, a number of Republican Congressmen, aides, and family had dinner and drinks and then decided to swim in the Sea of Galilee, which was nearby.
Among the members participating in the swim were Florida Congressman Steve Southerland and his daughter; New York Congressman Tom Reed and his wife, Arizona Congressman Ben Quayle, California Congressman Jeff Denham, and and New York Congressman Michael Grimm. However, Congressman Yoder appears to be the only one that took his clothes off during the swim while other swimmers were fully clothed and some took off some clothing.
We are tracking this issue for each of these Congressmen and will update each independently.
