WAMU Coverage of the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Federal Workforce, Postal Service and the District of Columbia hearing titled “Greater Autonomy for the Nation’s Capitol”

This morning as I was participating in my normal colonial activities at the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Federal Workforce, Postal Service and the District of Columbia hearing titled “Greater Autonomy for the Nation’s Capitol,”


and about 10 minutes before the hearing was to begin, I was asked to remove my tricorn hat by an unnamed Hill staffer. I politely protested and she called the U.S. Capitol Police.

I was chatting with the 3 other U.S. Capitol Police officers the entire time.

One of the people present who noticed that I had been removed turned out to be the reporter Megan Hughes of WAMU, the American University NPR affiliate station in Washington, DC. Near the end of the hearing she walked over and handed me a note asking to speak with me after the hearing was over. I ended up speaking to her for about 5 minutes, but only about 15 second made it into the segment.

I was really hoping she’d use my crude comments about Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT). Even after being detained, Chaffetz was the person I felt the most animosity towards after the hearing. The not-so-distinguished gentleman sleeps on a cot in his Capitol Hill office and thinks he should be involved in the governance of the District of Columbia.
