House Hopeful Dives Into Kevin Yoder’s Skinny Dipping Past

Posted September 26, 2014 at 9:00am

It may be old news in #ThisTown, but Kansas Democrat Kelly Kultala doesn’t want anyone back home to forget about Rep. Kevin Yoder’s embarrassing swing through Israel.  

The second-term Kansas Republican made headlines a few years back after it was revealed that he, and a handful of other GOP lawmakers, had thrown caution (and, apparently, their clothing) to the wind just before taking an ill-advised plunge into the sacrosanct Sea of Galilee in August 2011. Team Kultala invested five-figures to dredge up the incident for this ad.  

Yoder did the whole mea culpa thing . And he has, at least to the best of our knowledge, managed to keep covered up while here in Washington.
