Republican Lawmaker Caught on Video Pouring Water Into Democratic Colleague's Bag

Vermont House Rep Mary Morrissey apologized on the house floor on Monday, June 17, after being caught on video pouring water into a colleague’s tote bag on at least two separate occasions.

Footage released by Democratic Rep Jim Carroll shows Republican Rep Morrissey pouring water from a glass into a bag hung up on a rack in a hallway on two occasions, with the videos dated April 23 and April 26.

Carroll captured the videos using what local newspaper Seven Days described as a “spy camera.” The outlet was the first to report on the incident.

Carroll told the Associated Press the situation was “relentless,” and said his bag was soaked a couple of times per week in January and February, before it began to happen almost daily.

“I am truly ashamed of my actions,” Morrissey said in her apology Monday, according to Seven Days.
