A Florida congressman is getting a lot of attention because he gave grenades as a gift to his new colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives.
A spokesperson for Cory Mills said that House GOP members were given letters and fake grenades as a welcome gift. A spokesperson said that there was no chance that the grenades would hurt the lawmakers.
“We delivered them to offices and got great feedback,” the spokesperson said. “Of course, all necessary security measures were taken, and Capitol police even escorted staff into the building with them. Each and every one was thoroughly examined.”
