Mitch McConnell is a turtle, claims Wikipedia edit made from inside Congress

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is not a human, but a turtle, according to some jokester Wikipedia editor.

What's more, whoever made the edit did so using an IP address linked the the House of Representatives, according to @congress-edits, a Twitter account that flags edits made by people on the Hill. That doesn't necessarily mean a rival lawmaker took an anonymous jab at McConnell, but simply that someone who had access to Congress' internet connection pulled the prank.

McConnell's alleged resemblance to a turtle is something of a running joke.
