Daily Mail Reports GOP Congressmembers Drinking without Source

On Sunday, a report from the Daily Mail (UK) suggested that House Republicans had been drinking during debates over the continuing resolution on Capitol Hill on Saturday night. The report stated: “Accusations of drinking among House Republicans during late-night debates spread like wildfire this weekend as they brought the government ever closer to a shutdown.” But the Daily Mail cited no source that stated Republicans were the Congressmembers doing the drinking. Politico reporter Ginger Gibson tweeted, “I’m not over exaggerating when I say I can smell the booze wafting from members as they walk off the floor.” Kate Nocera of BuzzFeed tweeted, “I def saw more than 1 member of congress putting a few back on Penn earlier. Ran into 2 in the liquor store.” Gibson also tweeted, “For all those asking for names, sorry, I didn’t get close enough to figure out the source of the smell.”
