The nation's eyes have been on Washington, D.C. for the impeachment trial and those eyes caught Senator Mitt Romney with Congress floor contraband—a bottle of BYU chocolate milk.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the only bottled beverages allowed on the Senate floor are "water, still or sparkling, served by Senate pages."
After being caught in the act, Romney left the chamber and returned with his chocolate milk, this time in a glass instead of a bottle.
Twitter exploded with comments about Romney's "drinking" habits.
The New York Times Graphics Department quickly provided a visual rendering of what occurred.
Garrett Haake, an MSNBC correspondent, called it Romney's most rebellious act.
Fellow Utah Congressman, Ben McAdams, joined the conversation.
Max Lockie, the editor of Quartz, called Romney a "maverick."

McKay Coppins, a staff writer for The Atlantic and a BYU graduate, wondered how the congressman got the famous Provo milk from over 2,000 miles away.
In 2011, Parade asked Ann Romney something bad that her husband likes to eat or drink. Her response? "Chocolate milk."
Apparently this habit is not new.
