What began in professional golf has now moved its way over into politics. Utah Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart and Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz immersed themselves (literally) in the so-called “ice bucket challenge.”
If you’re unfamiliar with the ice bucket challenge, it’s process where a person posts a video of themselves dumping a bucket of ice cold water over their heads. At the end of the video the person calls on specific people to either take the challenge or donate to charity.
In this case, Utah Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart took the challenge and donated to the American Cancer Society, while calling on Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz to do the same.
Chaffetz took the challenge and posted the video over the weekend.
