Someone in the U.S. House of Representatives has been spending way too much time on Tumblr. According to Congress Edits, the Twitter account that tracks Wikipedia edits made from IP addresses in Congress, one anonymous jokester edited Minority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell’s Wikipedia page to say he’s a turtle.

Otherkin is a subculture, popular on Tumblr, of people who believe that though their bodies are human, they’re actually non-human on the inside.

Hmmm, wonder why the jokester would call McConnell a turtle?
