(KCPW News) Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz defended himself against repeated accusations that he’s a tax criminal from a hostile MSNBC host last night.
Lawrence O’Donnell slammed Chaffetz for sleeping in his congressional office to save money without declaring it as a benefit on his tax return.
The congressman, who smiled and laughed throughout the interview even though he was cut off repeatedly, said he rejected O’Donnell’s claim, and was just trying to save money for his family.
Chaffetz later tweeted that the interview was “a bit over the top.” He also posted that he was on the House floor until 4 a.m. last night as Congress worked on a spending bill.
