These guys have yet to get a clue! Rep. Jason Chaffetz came home to Utah and faced a full capacity crowd for his town hall, bolting almost an hour early to chants of "Your last term!" Rather than reconcile the obvious anger from his constituents and rethink his support of Donald Trump and Paul Ryan’s destructive agenda, he’s blaming “paid protesters.” From the Deseret News:
Chaffetz said the crowd that filled the auditorium at Brighton High School in Cottonwood Heights and spilled over into a protest outside included people brought in from other states to disrupt the meeting.
"Absolutely. I know there were," he said, suggesting it was "more of a paid attempt to bully and intimidate" than a reflection of the feelings of his 3rd District constituents.
Asked who would foot the bill to fill the audience with outside agitators, Chaffetz said, "do some reporting" and described how one participant made it a point to say he was not being paid by a national Democratic organization.
Are you getting paid, Utah residents? Who do these fools think are paying people to show up and oppose them? Can Chaffetz point to some super, top-secret job listing board? Rep. Chaffetz, it is time to put this “paid protester” fantasy to rest and face the facts that your own constituents are not happy and 100 percent want you to do your job as their representative and as the chairman of the House Oversight Committee. There are 633 days until the 2018 midterm elections and if you don’t do your job now, you could find yourself looking for a new job then.
