Freshman congressman stopped from bringing beer onto the House floor. W A S HINGTO
Freshman Rep. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C., made a rookie mistake Friday when he attempted to bring a six-pack of craft beer onto the floor of the House of Representatives.
Cunningham laughed off the incident after he was stopped. He later explained that he was trying to bring beer from local breweries in his home state to Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-ore., co-chairman of the House Small Brewers Caucus.
Only water is allowed on the House floor.
