During YESTERDAY's (7/9) House Judiciary Committee meeting, CHICAGO congressman. Rep. LUIS GUTIERREZ (D-IL) surprised everyone with the announcement that he and his wife SORAIDA have been PPM panelists -- and offered his opinion that their experience was less that perfect.
"It really is very burdensome technology," GUTIERREZ said. "My wife’s dresses sometimes did not accommodate the little gadget." The congressman got a chuckle from those present when he said he "received five bucks for his efforts, and added he was so happy about being chosen, he would’ve done it for free.
GUTIERREZ mentioned he found it difficult to remember to carry the PPM device every day. He also mentioned he brought it with him to WASHINGTON, and no D.C. stations showed in the CHICAGO ratings.
