NEW YORK -- Congressman Tom Reed was among those who took part in a now very infamous swim in the Sea of Galilee. It actually happened last summer during a fact-finding mission to Israel.
It's grabbing attention now because Congressman Kevin Yoder from Kansas swam at the holy-site without any clothes on. There were about 20 people in the group, and Yoder was the only person who chose not to wear clothes.
A spokesperson for Congressman Reed said that Reed and his wife were there and swam together with a large group, appropriately clothed. They didn't have any further comment.
