The Young Turks look into the story of Rep. Kevin Yoder skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee while on an AIPAC junket to Israel.  I think Richard Silverstein nails this story:

It would be unfortunate if Aipac came out of this smelling like a rose.  It certainly knew of the misbehavior.  One wonders what other sorts of behavior have occurred on Israel junkets and whether there has been creative accounting used on other trips.  The main point is that these trips and those who sponsor them and even those who participate in them are engaging in corrupt acts.  I don’t mean this legally since unfortunately these junkets aren’t illegal (though they should be).  I mean, rather, that the trips, the enormous amounts spent on them, the wining and dining, the influence peddling–all of it is corrupt.  It nourishes the dysfunction which characterizes the Congressional approach to Israel issues.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
