While visiting the NewsForMormons website, I discovered this video. Originally posted on December 1st, 2008, it shows the Fox News Channel's Bill Hemmer (who formerly worked for CNN) interviewing newly-elected Utah Third District Congressman Jason Chaffetz. The subject: Chaffetz' intention to sleep in his office - on a cot. Hemmer gets a bit snarky, but it's still informative:
The cot earned Chaffetz the most notoriety in his first week. CNN, Fox, Politico, Congressional Quarterly all mentioned the fact that Chaffetz plans to sleep in his office -- on a cot purchased at Smith's -- instead of renting an apartment in the pricey Washington area.
Chaffetz has already displayed his willingness to resist pork - even if Utah would benefit from the pork. He recently expressed opposition to giving the District of Columbia a U.S. House seat, even though Utah would pick up a fourth U.S. House seat in the deal. Chaffetz believes giving D.C. a House seat would be unconstitutional, a stance earning him editorial praise from the Provo Daily Herald, the fourth largest newspaper in the state.
