Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 10, 2017

Monday morning on Fox Business, former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz was incensed over the idea that the Senate would leave early with such a lengthy list of things to do. "It's infuriating," Chaffetz said. "[Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell went out in July and touted that the Senate was gonna stay in session through the end of next week. And yet, they adjourned early." ... The problem, of course, with Jason Chaffetz's criticism of the 115th Congress for shirking its duties and leaving early is that Jason Chaffetz was part of the 115th Congress -- until he shirked his duties and left early. The former House Oversight Committee Chairman resigned from Congress on June 30 to become a Fox News contributor.

This seems like a perfectly valid criticism... The problem, of course, with Jason Chaffetz's criticism of the 115th Congress for shirking its duties and leaving early is that Jason Chaffetz was part of the 115th Congress -- until he shirked his duties and left early.
