Now if this had been Democrats – imagine the uproar.
Congressional investigations. Special prosecutors. And DEMANDS from Republicans that the leader of the Democratic Party (after resigning) take responsibility.
So for me the interesting thing will be to watch Mitt Romney and what his reaction will be.
Leader? Or wimp………………
‘Mitt Romney refused to condemn Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and four other Republicans who have alleged that Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is part of a Muslim Brotherhood campaign to infiltrate the American government’.

‘Romney refused to directly repudiate Donald Trump’s claims that President Obama was born in Kenya just hours before he is scheduled to appear with the reality T.V. star for a fund raiser in Las Vegas, NV’.

‘He also wouldn’t decry Rush Limbaugh for calling Sandra Fluke a “slut”’.

‘And he refused to speak out against social conservatives who opposed his decision to hire an openly-gay national security spokesperson’.

Again if Democrats had done this, IT would be become a campaign issue against President Obama.
‘The Sea of Galilee, a Christian holy site, is where Jesus is said in the Bible to have walked on water’.
‘These GOP sources confirmed the following freshmen lawmakers also went swimming that night: Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.) and his daughter; Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) and his wife; Reps. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.). Many of the lawmakers who ventured into the lake said they did so because of the religious significance of the waters. Others said they were simply cooling off after a long day. Several privately admitted that alcohol may have played a role in why some of those present decided to jump in’.
‘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’.
“A year ago, my wife, Brooke, and I joined colleagues for dinner at the Sea of Galilee in Israel. After dinner I followed some Members of Congress in a spontaneous and very brief dive into the sea and regrettably I jumped into the water without a swimsuit,” Yoder said in a statement to POLITICO’.
