Teabagging Mormon Jason Chaffetz Demands Details Of Secret Service Sex Scandal

Jason Chaffetz wants to get to the bottom of a sex scandal involving a prostitute and a W.H. aide in 2012. Meanwhile, the 113th Congress can't pass a single law of any substance.

Utah Teabagger and LDS convert, Jason Chaffetz, is riveted by a possible White House link to the 2012 Colombia-Secret Service-prostitution scandal. He received a tweet from W.H. Press Secretary Josh Earnest dismissing the allegations as "old news." The family values Republican, who is vehemently against gay marriage, labels this a priority in such troubling times.

Chaffetz saw the light and became a good LDS Republican, denouncing his liberal upbringing

As a good GOP member of Congress, he feels the nation must know the details of this 2012 scandal, where an aide to the Obama White House was also (allegedly) involved in inappropriate sexual relations during a presidential visit. He does not think the nation should worry about a Congressional Declaration of War against ISIL, renewing unemployment insurance benefits, or approving a Surgeon General amidst panic over dangerous viruses (just to name a few things).

This is priority, because this will earn the fame-seeking Mormon recognition in prominent teabagger circles. It's not the first time he's tried to fit in. He most likely converted to the Mormon 'faith' to accept a football scholarship to BYU. Ironically, his father, John Chaffetz, from San Francisco, wrote a book in support of Gay Marriage.

The man known on Twitter as the hip @JasonintheHouse, saw dollar signs advocating policy contrary to his family's viewpoints. He seeks the Chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee with the 2014 GOP midterm "victory."

According to the Washington Post, this scandal was kept under wraps prior to the 2012 presidential campaign. The Secret-Service members were promptly fired, but Chaffetz is very concerned that the man in question, Jonathan Dach, is working for the State Department as a representative of the U.S. in global women's issues.

This probably bothers Republicans because they don't really advocate for women's equality in the first place, not for obvious reasons. Steve Doocy mentioned that Dach's father was a big donor to the Obama campaign. This is shocking because no Republican would ever favor a donor in their administrations, they are above reproach.

Chaffetz urges the White House to

"Come clean, share all the documents from the White House.. they say it's an old story, let the American people decide."

The aide in question, Dach, 25 at the time, probably screwed up royally and deserved reprimand. But the GOP seems to have a double standard when it comes to their scandals.

The New York Times shed light on the curious practice of the random GOP responses to ethics violations.

If House members are caught up in sexual peccadilloes or other made-for-television acts, they have been driven from Capitol Hill posthaste. If the allegations are more complicated, they have largely been given a pass.

Senator David Vitter and Representative Michael Grimm have been defended and forgiven while Representatives Vance McAllister and Mark Foley were ostracized.

The Washington Post claims this development is not a fait accompli.

Whether the White House volunteer, Jonathan Dach, was involved in wrongdoing in Cartagena, Colombia, remains unclear. Dach, then a 25-year-old Yale University law student, declined to be interviewed, but through his attorney he denied hiring a prostitute or bringing anyone to his hotel room. Dach has long made the same denials to White House officials.

But Chaffetz wants to get to the bottom of this. This is priority number one for a nation facing enormous challenges. When Fox News and the GOP were in charge of dictating a president's agenda, we were hemorrhaging jobs and involved in preemptive, illegal wars. Personally, I'd much rather forget such trivial events and would prefer that our Press Secretary focuses on real issues.
