Tim Griffin is all wet

Posted By on Fri, Aug 15, 2014 at 10:35 AM

Rep. Tim Griffin is the latest to participate in the "ice bucket challenge" series of viral videos of various celebrities and others getting a bucket of ice water dumped on them. The videos aim to raise money and awareness for the ALS Association — once someone is challenged, they can either dump cold water on their head or donate money toward fighting ALS (or both). Yesterday, Gov. Mike Beebe got soaked

Griffin's entry is notable in these parts because as part of his video, he challenges his favorite journalist, Max Brantley, to take the icy plunge. Max is out of town and likely offline at the moment, but we'll try to pass the message along. 

p.s. Griffin gets style points for the rare ice-bucket selfie approach.
