A Democrat congressman is already stirring up trouble just days into his first term on Capitol Hill, attempting to bring a six-pack of beer onto the House floor on Friday afternoon.
“Making friends when you’re a freshman is hard and I thought I’d grease the skids with some Lowcountry beer,” Cunningham tweeted, noting that DeFazio received the banned brews.
A reporter for Politico confirmed that DeFazio received his beer, tweeting a picture of the Oregon Democrat carrying the six-pack:
The six pack included several South Carolina craft brews, including Dead Arm from Coast Brewing and One Claw and White Thai from Westbrook Brewing Company, the Post and Courier reported.

Making friends when you’re a freshman is hard and I thought I’d grease the skids with some Lowcountry beer. Thankfully @RepPeterDeFazio got it in the end! Can I join the beer caucus now? https://t.co/RtW6InDfTK
