Republicans are already warning GOP convention goers to be on their best behavior in Tampa this year. Texas Rep. Pete Sessions is warning that even grabbing a cup of coffee can look bad if you're not careful.

With the advent of cell phones, anyone can be an opposition tracker, so members should be wary of doing anything questionable in public, Rep. Pete Sessions, the National Republican Congressional Committee chairman, warned fellow Republicans at a Capitol Hill meeting Wednesday.

“Let’s say you are going to have a cup of coffee. Perhaps, it’s a late night cup of coffee. Be careful,” the Texas Republican said at a conference committee meeting, according to several sources who attended.

The message was “just be aware that even if you don’t think you are being a dumb a— and you are going to events, it can still look bad,” one Republican lawmaker said of the meeting.

Keep the alcohol intake to controllable levels, folks.
