(CBS News) It may not be the kind of bipartisanship Americans were hoping to find in Congress.
Since April, four House Republicans have reported thefts from their Congressional offices, and on September 11, according to Capitol Police records obtained by National Journal, North Carolina Rep. Mike McIntyre became the first Democrat (and fifth House member) to report a burglary.
Between August 3 and September 11, two bottles of scotch, three presidential easter eggs, ten pairs of collectible cufflinks, and two bottles of cologne disappeared from McIntyre's office.
Reps. Jerry Lewis and Elton Gallegly, two California Republicans, reported similar burglaries in which thieves targeted memorabilia and top-shelf alcohol, suggesting the possibility of a link between the incidents.
Two other Republican congressional offices reported the theft of electronics equipment, including a computer monitor and a digital camera, National Journal reports.
A spokesperson for the Capitol Police assured members that law enforcement is working "diligently to solve these cases" but did not allude to any leads or further information on the investigation.
