GOP Congressman in Israel: Skinny Dip-Shit?

Bad day for GOPers continues with one of the greatest ledes ever tonight from Politico:  "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."  Maybe these ultra-Christians just wanted to see if Jesus really could walk on the water?

As Jon Stewart would say: Go on.... "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 took part in the trip."

Names are named, including Dan Quayle's kid.  It was a "private-funded" trip of 30 lawmakers.  Two of the top three GOPers in Congress were there (Cantor and McCarthy) but reportedly were not among the swimmers.
