Liberals are all excited about this little excursion. I’ve even heard a conservative or two calling for resignations over it. Seriously?
The FBI probed a late-night swim in the Sea of Galilee that involved drinking, numerous GOP freshmen lawmakers, top leadership staff — and one nude member of Congress, according to more than a dozen sources, including eyewitnesses.
During a fact-finding congressional trip to the Holy Land last summer, Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.) took off his clothes and jumped into the sea, joining a number of members, their families and GOP staff during a night out in Israel, the sources told POLITICO. Other participants, including the daughter of another congressman, swam fully clothed, while some lawmakers partially disrobed. More than 20 people took part in the late-night dip in the sea, according to sources who were participants in the trip.
They went swimming. Just like the Israelis do in the Sea of Galilee. Just like many of the people reading this do in their backyard pools. It sounds like fun.
Yes, Kevin Yoder did take off his clothes to swim, for which he deserves to be appropriately punished. That punishment should be being hit on the head with a rolled up newspaper and told, “That’s a bad Congressman! Bad! If you wanted to go skinny dipping, you should have done it before you got into Congress because it’s too late now! Bad Congressman!”
Let’s not go crazy. It’s just a little swimming.
