Congressmen are having way too much fun this summer. Senator Flake is surviving in the wild and another congressman is giving away guns! Check out what your elected representatives do when they're not in D.C.
Almost four years ago, Senator Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) went to a deserted island to fulfill his “lifelong dream of spending a survivalist week alone.” He recently returned to that same area, this time with two of his sons. When he began running for Senate, he promised them he would do this after the campaign. They all enjoyed themselves, and even made a video of the trip! Flake said, “I have the best job in the world … but still the islands beckon.”
On May 31, Rep. Rick Nolan (D-Minn.) tweeted, “On the Harley today with MN VFW Ride for Healing to raise $ for the Ed. Center at the Vietnam Wall in DC. pic.twitter.com/QOnaP5kh2Z.” The leather jacket suits him!
The Texas Republican congressman is holding a drawing to win a free Bushmaster AR-15! His website explains:
"Enter the drawing to win a FREE Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, almost impossible to find in stores and the number one firearm on the gun banners' wish list! Winner drawn July 4, 2013."
It’s just what he does best.
Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu’s tweet is pro-jobs and pro-sweet tooth!
“Since 2010, Vice President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden have invited top journalists to their home at the Naval Observatory for a beach bash that has included Super Soaker fights, face painting, and a moon bounce.”
Unfortunately, this means no chance of good ol’ Joe being Joe and saying something hilarious, as he often tends to do.
On June 3, Himes (D-Conn.) tweeted, “This is an Oreo baked into a chocolate chip cookie! Nothing succeeds like excess. Now if you'll excuse me.... pic.twitter.com/m6voKDdZGD.” I applaud him for tweeting before eating it all!
Kellogg’s put Representative Thomas Massie’s (R-Ky.) face on a cereal box! This actually explains a lot...
Get Grassy with Massie! Hmm...
Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) shows her support for the Miami Heat in one of her many cowboy hats.
