Congressman Rivera's Embarrassing and Intoxicated Trip To Israel

Congressman Gone Wild on Vacation: Many Questions Remain about This Debauchery on the Trip Abroad

TALLAHASSEE, FL — On the heels of an explosive Politico report detailing an FBI investigation into a congressional delegation trip to Israel that Congressman David Rivera participated in, which included “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, ” the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:  

“If Congressman Rivera participated in this type of conduct it’s an embarrassment to all Floridians,” said David Bergstein, spokesman for the Florida Democratic Party. “When he’s not voting to make Medicare a voucher program, Rivera continues to show the people of Florida that he is part of the problem in Washington. Rivera’s true values have been stripped bare, and he’s shown his constituents, yet again, that he’s become part of the problem in Washington.”
