US Rep. Kevin Yoder Responds To FBI Investigaton Of Israeli Trip

The news is out that during a trip to Israel in 2011, Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder joined a group of  Republican lawmakers for a quick dip into the Sea of Galilee.  

An FBI investigation of that trip revealed that Rep. Yoder dove in sans swimsuit, a decision he now deems "a regrettable incident."   Today, Rep. Yoder talks with Steve Kraske to apologize for his actions, explain how the trip came about and express his puzzlement over why the FBI was investigating the trip.
