Lawmaker Busted for Playing Candy Crush During Committee Meeting

British newspaper The Sun got a look at what one member of Parliament was doing during a recent committee hearing:

Mills posted an apology on Twitter for his behavior:

But that’s not the end of it, because The Sun obtained pictures and video of Mills playing the game, and doing so is a breach of Parliament rules. And so, there is an investigation underway into who filmed the video.
