Sen. Mark Kirk says the real driving force behind the gun deal that was hatched by bipartisan work was booze and boat retreats.
The Illinois Republican said to reporters that visits to the Black Tie, a yacht owned by Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, played a large role in the Democratic-Republican come-together over background checks and other legislation related to gun control, Roll Call reported.
You guys really ought to go out to National Harbor and see the Black Tie, which has been much of the reason for much of the bipartisan cooperation around here, he said, as quoted in Roll Call.
Frequent visitors to the luxury vessel: Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Mr. Kirk said.

Pic of yacht here:
By DC standards, that’s a skiff.
He does look like satan in The Bible. He looks more like him every time I see him.
I won’t say anything else since we have been reminded we have no expectation to privacy via electronic means.
in the old days the devious democrats successfully used prostitutes to sway the Republican elite. The world of Washington sex has always prevailed, lobbyists come second although at times the two have overlapped.
“They like us! We’re finally one of the popular kids!” -pretty much the mentality in DC on the part of the reps selling us out.
Prostitutes are so old-school. These days why pay?
My God have mercy on us...
Sounds like they party like MN Vikings.
Murkowski’s the biggest whore of them all. Bitch still calling herself a R? After she was primaried by a R?
You don’t see many yachts in West Virginia. I wonder if the folks back home know about Manchin’s party boat?
I feel sick.
The cockles of my heart are now warmed.
“I feel sick.”
Mass nausea is the only thing these corrupt people have to offer the rest of us.
Too bad they didn’t go on a 3 hour tour...
Hey, Kirk. Unemployment back home is close to 10%. Good to see you mf’s living it up “doing the people’s business.”
