WTF? Child Happens Upon A Loaded Glock In Boehner's Capitol Bathroom [View all]

Child Finds A Loaded Gun In John Boehner's Capitol Bathroom
TPM * May 1, 2015 * Ahiza Garcia

A 7- or 8-year-old boy found a loaded gun in House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) Capitol suite bathroom a little more than a month ago, Roll Call reported on Friday.

The gun, which Roll Call only referred to as a Glock, was reportedly left there on March 24 by a dignitary protection officer.

The incident, however, was not isolated, according to Roll Call. The publication reported that Capitol police have a tendency to leave their guns in the building's restrooms.

On Jan. 29, according to Roll Call, one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) security guards left a Glock and its magazine jammed into a toilet seat cover holder in a restroom stall at the Capitol's visitor center, where it was found by an employee.

And on April 16, a janitor found a Glock that had been left out in the open as he was cleaning the headquarters of the Capitol Police, according to Roll Call.

While two of the officers are still under investigation, according to Roll Call, the officer from McConnell's detail was suspended without pay for six days after the incident. The investigation and suspension were part of a report for the Capitol Police Board that Roll Call obtained Thursday.
