Airline officials are trying to figure out if there is anything to be done after a Georgia congressman urinated into a cup on a flight from Washington to Atlanta on Thursday night.
Democratic Rep. Sanford Bishop, flying from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to Hartsfield Airport on Delta Flight 1717, got up to go to the bathroom after the mandatory half-hour when passengers must stay seated, but found the lavatories on the airplane occupied, his office and aviation sources said.
Sanford then asked a flight attendant for a cup, and "may" have said he intended to relieve himself, his office said.
He went to a section of the plane between the cockpit and first-class, then urinated into the cup, said Bishop spokesman Selby McCash, who described the congressman as "a very gracious and courtly gentleman."
No one accused him of exposing himself to the flight attendants or crew.
Controversy Over Dire Straits
There is some disagreement, however, over how dire the congressman's straits were.
McCash said Bishop had drunk a large amount of coffee, the flight had been delayed, and by the time the half-hour in the air was up, long lines for the bathroom formed at either end of the plane.

RATs have no manners.
but, it’s always been that way for these people.
Rep Sanford Bishop.....founding member of the Pee Party.
Snakes on a plane!
My God Man! Have you no pride?
Let’s assume he was having an urgency issue, it’s common beyond middle age. If he was sitting near me, I would certainly prefer the use of the cup to him sitting near me in urine-stained pants for most of the flight.
Could blame whoever invented the airplane. Whoops! That would be Hussein.
What else is he supposed to do?
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
I wonder how this would be handles if it had been a white Republican that had done this?
A "Peein' in the Cup" expression if ever I saw one.
Best drive time I ever made back in the 55mph days was 900 miles in 11:45 with a couple of empty Gatorade bottles for relief.

How many others were in your private automobile with you?
No biggie: Congressmen routinely piss on our rights openly, on the floor of the House. . .
RE Bladder issues?
Must be if it was that urgent and a cup could hold it.
I agree with you guys.
Sometimes an old guy just has to go....
It sounds like he did the best he could.
