SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Some attendees of a contentious town hall hosted by U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz last week have sent the congressman fake invoices after he claimed some people there were paid protesters.

The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/2ldvo0B ) reports Sandy resident Shauna Ehninger sent an “invoice” to Chaffetz’s office for $1,070, including $200 for two hours each of waiting in line and attending the town hall in Cottonwood Heights.

Chaffetz last Thursday faced irate constituents chanting “Do your job!” as they pressed the House Oversight Committee chairman to investigate President Donald Trump. He struggled to be heard as he faced a litany of sharp questions and screams from a crowd.

Ehninger says she is “sick of being referred to as a paid protester for simply standing up to this administration.”
