Video: Parker Griffith Loses Committee Posts

Parker Griffith (AL), the freshman representative who left the Democratic Party this week to become a Republican less than a year after entering Congress, officially lost the committee posts assigned to him by the Democratic Caucus.

The Speaker pro tempore reads a letter from Caucus Chairman John B. Larson (D-CT), who incidentally donated $4,000 to Griffith from his own campaign (Griffith has said he will refund any donations to Democrats who ask for their money back).
