EVERETT, Wash. (AP) ' U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen has fired three staffers who apparently chronicled their on-the-job drinking exploits, including taking shots of Jack Daniels at their desks, via Twitter.

The Everett Herald ( reports that Larsen, a Democrat, fired the trio Thursday after learning of their Twitter activity.

A statement from his office says Larsen is disappointed and wants to make clear such behavior will not be tolerated.

The three ' legislative assistants Seth Burroughs and Elizabeth Robbee and legislative correspondent Ben Byers ' worked in Larsen's Washington, D.C., office.

Their Twitter accounts had been deleted by Thursday, but not before a conservative political blog, The Northwest Daily Marker, posted screenshots of the tweets.
