  • Don Benton addresses 'fake news' and why the U.S. still (sort of) has a draft | Capitol Happy Hour

    Don Benton, a former Republican Washington state senator, talks about his new job leading the U.S. Selective Service System, which registers men for a nonexistent military draft. He also talks about why he likes taking the metro in Washington, D.C. (even though he's fought light rail at home), why he no longer works at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and what really happened when he allegedly called another lawmaker "a trashy, trampy mouthed little girl." Also, he corrects what he says is fake news about his military record. Filmed at Crown Bar in Tacoma, Washington, on June 13, 2017.

A surprising number of men in Washington aren't registering for the draft. That’s a felony.

    U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-Gig Harbor) explains why the federal government always seems on the verge of a government shutdown. "It's bonkers," he says.

Filmed August 21, 2017 at Crown Bar in Tacoma.
