Sam Graves beers his way through budget negotiation
Sometimes politicians just make it too easy to rain down ridicule on them. Missouri Republican Rep. Sam Graves illustrated this point all too well Friday night during pitched negotiations to avoid a government shutdown.
While Speaker of the House John Boehner and President Obama were duking
it out over funding — and as families were desperately praying that they could
still drag their kids to the Washington Monument — Graves and presumably
his staff were tipping a few on Friday night. A congressional staffer sent Gawker a photo at right of the exterior of Graves’
dorm room office littered with five empty Miller Lite and Bud Light cases and a pizza box.
