You’ve probably forgotten about a scandal from a couple of years ago involving a yacht and a Napa Valley winery in which Rep. Devin Nunes is an investor.
The Republican congressman hasn’t.
Nunes filed a $150 million defamation lawsuit last week against a newspaper publisher. The suit has yanked the story, about an alleged 2015 sex-and-drug-fueled party aboard the Alpha Omega vessel, back into the headlines.
The article said Nunes (R-Visalia) wasn't on the yacht the day of the party, and linked him to a winery employee's complaint in his capacity as an investor in the Alpha Omega Winery. But the congressman sued Fresno Bee publisher McClatchy in early April, saying: "They need to retract everything they did against me."
KQED reporters discovered the Alpha Omega yacht in a Sausalito marina with a "For Sale" sign on it, and wondered if the sale had anything to do with its headlined past.
