WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON? Chaffetz to Take Immediate Leave of Absence for Medical Emergency...

By Leah Barkoukis | Townhall.com --

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz announced late Wednesday that he will be taking an emergency medical leave of absence from Congress for up to a month.

“Almost 12 years ago, I shattered several bones in my foot which required 14 screws and a metal plate to repair. Yes, I wish I could say I was cliff diving in Mexico but the truth is I fell off a ladder while repairing something in my garage. The University of Utah doctors now recommend immediate surgery to remove all the hardware or I could be at risk for serious infection," the congressman wrote in an Instagram post.

The news comes after he announced earlier this month that he would not be seeking re-election in 2018, even indicating that he might not even finish his current term.
