GOP Rep Sorry for Nude Swim in Sea of Galilee
I’m really embarrassed to say that this yoyo is my congressman.
A GOP freshman congressman from Kansas apologized last night for a nude swim in the Sea of Galilee last summer during an official trip to Israel.
Rep. Kevin Yoder issued a statement after Politico reported the FBI investigated the incident, which included drinking and involved several lawmakers and top congressional aides.
The FBI investigation did not result in any “formal allegations of wrongdoing,” according to the Politico report. Politico said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the senior lawmaker on the fact-finding trip, was “so upset by the antics that he rebuked the 30 lawmakers” on Aug. 19, 2011, the day after the incident.
