Congressman Chabot of Ohio was giving a speech in a public place. Two constituents were recording this. A policeman told both of them this was illegal and to hand over their cell phones. They both insisted they had every right to do this. The policemen told them they did not, that it was against the law.
Our elected officials have decided that the Constitution does not apply to them. They are sick and tired of seeing videos of what they have said posted on YouTube, and they aren’t going to take it any more.
These people are running scared. The technology of exposure is a threat to the Good Old Boys system that Congress has been ever since 1788.
They can run, they they can’t hide. There are too many voters with cell phones.
