Rat invades Schumer and Durbin's Washington house

July 19, 2013 at 3:32 PM

WASHINGTON, July 19 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., confirmed a rat has infiltrated the Washington group house he shares with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

Citing a source close to the situation, CQ Roll Call reported traps have been set around the house, owned by Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., in an attempt to catch the rat, and Schumer has been overheard talking on his cellphone about exterminators.

Schumer released a statement confirming the rodent's presence in the house.

"Durbin and I are united in our hopes that it's dead, but if it's not, I hope it's upstairs and he hopes it's downstairs," said Schumer, who presumably lives downstairs.
