Congressman Jared Polis Vlogs for CNN


Jared Polis, who ranks as the third-wealthiest member of the U.S. House of Representatives, is moonlighting for CNN. The Boulder Democrat and Congressman Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, are providing video blogs to the Cable News Network about what it’s like to be a newbie on the Hill, according to The Denver Post.

Polis travels through the tunnels below the Capitol to a meeting of the Rules Committee, while a group from the Sierra Club waits for him in his office. He compares his first days in Congress to starting college.

“We wander around aimlessly, clutching maps, trying to find our way around ‘campus,'” Polis says, adding that he’s probably going to try out for the congressional baseball team.
