Kat Cammack doubles down on her claim that Democrats were DRINKING

‘If it wasn’t true, why did they get so offended?’ Republican Kat Cammack doubles down on her claim that Democrats were DRINKING during Speaker votes and says there are secret ‘cubbies’ where members store alcohol

  • ‘Here on Capitol Hill, a place where there are literally cubbies where members have tucked their alcohol aside, it’s no surprise to anyone,’ she said
  • Cammack said earlier it was clear Democrats were relishing in Republican division by the ‘popcorn, blankets and alcohol’ they were bringing to votes
  • Democrats erupted over the remark, shouting at the House Clerk to strike it from the record. ‘Take down her words!’ 

Rep. Kat Cammack doubled down on accusing Democratic members of Congress of drinking and said the debauchery on Capitol Hill is ‘no surprise to anyone.’ 

‘Here on Capitol Hill, a place where there are literally cubbies where members have tucked their alcohol aside, it’s no surprise to anyone,’ the Florida Republican said, adding that Democrats only got ‘offended’ because they knew it to be true. 

On Wednesday Cammack took to the podium on the House floor to nominate Kevin McCarthy for his six of now ten ballots. 

The congresswoman said it was clear Democrats were relishing in Republican division by the ‘popcorn, blankets and alcohol’ they were bringing to votes.

Cammack acknowledged the ‘Groundhog Day’ feeling on the House floor as she nominated McCarthy for Speaker for the sixth ballot.

‘They want us to fight each other — that much has been made clear by the popcorn, and blankets, and alcohol that is coming over there,’ Cammack said.

Democrats erupted over the remark, shouting at the House Clerk to strike it from the record. ‘Take down her words!’ some shouted, as others demanded an apology.

‘If only! If Dems took a shot every time McCarthy lost a Republican, we’d all be unconscious by now,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter.

Earlier many Democrats posted photos on Twitter of tins of popcorn they were bringing to the cloakroom as they watched chaos unfold among their colleagues on the other side of the aisle.

Democrats have been poking fun at Republican in-fighting as McCarthy moves no closer to becoming the House speaker. 

Earlier this year ousted Rep. Madison Cawthorn was chastised by his Republican colleagues for saying that cocaine use is rife on Capitol Hill and he had been invited to orgies by fellow lawmakers. 

'Here on Capitol Hill, a place where there are literally cubbies where members have tucked their alcohol aside, it's no surprise to anyone,' the Florida Republican said

‘The sexual perversion that goes on in Washington … being kind of a young guy in Washington where the average age is probably 60 or 70, I look at all these people – a lot of them who I’ve looked up to throughout my life … then all of a sudden you get invited to like, ‘well hey we’re going to have kind of a sexual get together at one of our homes. You should come,’ like, what did you just ask me to come to? And then you realize they’re asking you to come to an orgy.’

McCarthy is now staring down his tenth vote for speaker, having lost 21 Republican votes on the first nine ballots. The House must continue voting on the speaker’s race until it votes to adjourn.
