One of the sharpest, most astute journalists on Capitol Hill isn't at the Washington Post or Politico, he's a quiet, unassuming character with a camera and a microphone named Jan Helfeld. He's famous for getting Senator Harry Reid to claim that the income tax was voluntary and for flustering Nancy Pelosi so hard that she threatened to call the guards.
And if you thought that Congressman Michael Grimm recently threatening to throw a reporter over the balcony was bad, wait until you see what happens when Pete Stark threatens to throw Helfeld out a window and tries to confiscate his video tape.
Helfeld uses the Socratic Method in order to reveal contradictions in legislator's thinking, and he's damn good at it too. In this episode of The Freedom Report, we go behind the scenes to learn more about what Helfeld does, and how he gets these congress critters fuming after asking them simple questions about their ridiculous big government belief systems.
