(KCPW News) A vote to re-authorize parts of the PATRIOT Act split Utah’s congressional delegation this week. Representative Rob Bishop voted no, while both Congressmen Jim Matheson and Jason Chaffetz said yes. Since then, Chaffetz, who has previously fought against excessive domestic surveillance, has caught flack from his supporters. 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 asked him what Chaffetz and his constituents are saying about his PATRIOT Act vote.
