The wife of U.S Rep. Ben Quayle of Arizona issued a statement saying she and her husband didn’t witness any inappropriate behavior when 20 lawmakers went into the Sea of Galilee for a swim while on a fact-finding trip in Israel.

One of Ben Quayle’s colleagues, Rep. Kevin Yoder, has apologized to supporters for swimming naked at the holy site in August 2011.

A story by Politico says Quayle was among those who went on the late-night swim, but that Yoder was the only one who wore no clothes.

Quayle’s wife, Tiffany, says in a statement that she and her husband weren’t part of the inappropriate behavior described in the Politico account.

Ben Quayle faces U.S. Rep. David Schweikert in the Republican primary for Arizona’s 6th Congressional District.
