Beck's Congressman Vs. Beck's Foe: Jason Chaffetz Takes On Cass Sunstein

May 25, 2011 4:19 pm ET — Matt Gertz

What happens when Glenn Beck's favorite congressman comes face to face with Glenn Beck's most hated foe? An episode of the Fox News host's program breaks out in the middle of a House committee hearing.

As we've noted, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is a huge Beck fan, and the feeling is mutual. The GOP "rising star" has often used his position on the House Oversight Committee to push Beck's conspiracies in the halls of Congress.

Today, during an Oversight Subcommittee hearing, Chaffetz had the chance to question Cass Sunstein, Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs and the man Glenn Beck calls "the most evil man, most dangerous man in America."

Chaffetz did not disappoint, grilling Sunstein with a series of headlines ripped straight from the transcripts of the last two years of Beck's Fox News show.
