Integrity First PAC launches today targeting Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) as one of the top House members to unseat for 2018 cycle
PAC to focus on highlighting Chaffetz’s personal opportunism resulting in a dereliction of duty
SALT LAKE CITY - Integrity First PAC will officially launch today as thousands gather in opposition to Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) at his own town hall meeting.
Integrity First PAC is a grassroots organization dedicated to holding the Republican-controlled Congress accountable and to supporting leaders who put their integrity first.
Throughout the 2016 election cycle, our country witnessed Republican representatives flip-flopping between outrage over Donald Trump’s most egregious controversies to finally falling in line behind his authoritarian agenda, leaving their integrity and constituents behind as they pursued power and favor with the new administration.
Utah voters are no longer able to stand by and watch as Rep. Chaffetz pursues his personal interests at their expense. Partisan policy differences are one thing, but personal opportunism that results in a dereliction of duty is something else entirely.
Instead of doing his job, Rep. Chaffetz has chosen to keep his attention on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton while avoiding and dismissing outright any accusations or evidence of President Trump’s conflicts of interests. He has also attacked the Office of Government Ethics for doing its job and cautiously investigating some of Trump's many dangerous and potentially unconstitutional entanglements.
Integrity First PAC will make it a priority to hold Rep. Chaffetz accountable for his inaction and dereliction of duty.
Members of Integrity First PAC’s leadership team will be in attendance at tonight’s town hall event. For questions or contacts, please email: email@example.com
