(KCPW News) Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz got the chance to put the Transportation Security Administration on the hot seat for its much-criticized full body scans and pat downs at a congressional subcommittee hearing this week. But at first, TSA officials weren’t planning to show up. Every Friday, we talk with Thomas Burr, Washington Correspondent for the Salt Lake Tribune and author of Political Cornflakes, a daily, online round-up of Utah politics. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson began their conversation this week by asking why the TSA was going to ditch Chaffetz’s hearing.
