Most Americans are thrilled about today’s unexpected announcement from House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), that he plans to leave Congress after next year’s mid-term election.
Nobody’s happier than Utah Democrats, who decided to have a “Boy Bye” Goodbye Chaffetz Dance Party/Celebration right in front of the Republican’s offices in the city of Provo.
Her clever invite flyer is more dirty dancing than Pence protesting, and of course, she posted the event to Facebook publicly, and now it’s going viral.
But it’s Kelly’s choice of locations that is making Utah Dems chuckle.

Have fun Kate!
