Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is suing the parent company of his hometown newspaper for $150 million, Fox News reported Monday.
The lawsuit targets The McClatchy Company, owners of the Fresno Bee, along with reporter MacKenzie Mays and Republican consultant Liz Mair.
The lawsuit complains about a May 23, 2018 article titled, “A yacht, cocaine, prostitutes: Winery partly owned by Nunes sued after fundraiser event.”
Mays tweeted a link to the story.
A woman who worked for the winery (listed as a primary asset of Devin Nunes') sued after she said she was stranded on a yacht with its top investors who were using cocaine and underage sex workers. The cruise was auctioned off as part of a charity event. https://t.co/EQUgBXbgGM

Nunes was ridiculed as a “snowflake” for a similar lawsuit against Twitter parody accounts.
