Bustos Prods Pals: Be Good #IceBucketChallenge Sports

Rep. Cheri Bustos has decided it’s “Game On!” as far as dumping frosty water on one’s self is concerned.

The Illinois Democrat urged Congressional Women’s Softball Game MVP Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and members’ team co-captain Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., to wade into the quickly crowding waters next.

Roll Call Editor-in-Chief Christina Bellantoni got the ball rolling on auto-soaking earlier this week by challenging CWSG vet Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., to pour it on. Schultz has since announced she’ll take the plunge early next week.
