Republican Congressman Steve Chabot of Ohio didn’t like his chances of avoiding an embarrassing Youtube video from going viral on the internet so he did what a self-interested politician might do. He enlisted the police to confiscate cameras from citizens attending a townhall meeting.
The only trouble is that he now has to contend with two embarrassing videos showing police confiscating the cameras since television crews were there taping everything. Oppression has its consequences, some more ironic than others. -db
