Clearly unabashed, an elderly congressman has been filmed reading Playboy magazine on a flight to Washington.
Maybe it was for research purposes but it must surely be a touch embarrassing for 81-year-old John Conyers, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
The headline of the story on one website, The Michigan View, refers to 'Mr Smut goes to Washington'.
The Detroit Democratic congressman was on a plane headed to the capital when a fellow passenger filmed him flicking through pages of the magazine.
The video and pictures were first posted on the Facebook page of the former Pulitzer Prize winner Charlie LeDuff.
Gazing over the August issue of Playboy, Mr Conyer lingered over an article titled 'La Chatte' by Maureen Gibbon.
Mr Conyers is currently the second-longest serving incumbent member of the House and in January 2009 he led the House Committee on the Judiciary's release called Reining In The Imperial Presidency: Lessons And Recommendations Relating To The Presidency of George W. Bush.
It was a 486-page report detailing alleged abuses of power that occurred during the Bush administration, and a comprehensive set of recommendations to prevent recurrence.
Mr Conyers introduced a bill to set up a 'truth commission' panel to investigate alleged policy abuses of the Bush administration.
