Last year, Chaffetz said, "Let me loose," promising to be "like a kid in a candy store" investigating potential conflicts of interest in the event of a Trump presidency.
Today, Utahns are sending the congressman a whole store's worth of candy to remind him to follow through with an investigation. Bulk candy costs $10-$20 for a box; please consider making your own contribution to remind the congressman. We are coordinating to make our purchases today, while Chaffetz is still on the radar for his town hall. Join us! The more "gifts," the louder the message.
Here are the details:
1) Today (Friday 2/10), buy a large amount of candy to ship to Chaffetz's Utah office:
51 S University Ave.
Provo, UT 84601
2) Make it a gift, and in the message, say something like:
Congressman Chaffetz: In June 2016, you said you'd be like a kid in a candy store investigating Trump. Here's the candynow dig in! Do the right thing and do us proud. With love, The American Public
3) Take a screenshot of the checkout screen.
4) Tweet and share the screenshot on a Facebook (using public settings if possible), and share within political groups, using hashtag #sendchaffetzcandy
Be sure to include a link to the original 2016 article where Chaffetz talks about being a kid in the candy store. A good post might be something like:
Last year, House Oversight chair Jason Chaffetz promised he'd be "like a kid in a candy store" investigating Trump's potential conflicts of interest, but he's conveniently forgotten his promise. I sent him five lbs of Atomic Fireballs to jog his memory. #sendchaffetzcandy
Here's a Twitter-friendly version:
Chaffetz promised to investigate Trump "like a kid in a candy store," but seems he forgot. Remind him. http://bit.ly/2kOgTgZ #sendchaffetzcandy
