After enduring withering criticism for banning cameras at his town hall this week, Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH) has reversed course and will allow filming at future events, per spokesman Jamie Schwartz. Constituents had their cameras confiscated at the town hall, as video captured by ThinkProgress showed, but according to the AP, Schwartz said that “[i]n the future, cameras will be allowed.” Chabot will have his first opportunity to put words into practice at his next town hall on Monday, August 29.
