Ohio congressman invites taping after controversy
GOP Ohio congressman Chabot invites recordings in aftermath of controversy over cameras
By The Associated Press

CINCINNATI (AP) ' A Republican congressman from Ohio opened a town hall meeting by inviting videotaping, a week after he was accused of censorship when cameras were taken from two Democratic activists at another meeting.

About 250 people packed into a community center in Cincinnati for the Monday meeting led by U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot (SHA'-buht). Chabot drew both standing ovations and boos, causing him to say he had a good mixture of constituents.

He said videotaping was stopped at last week's meeting to protect constituents who didn't want questions about personal issues to be recorded. About a half dozen people recorded Monday's meeting, and Chabot stayed afterward to take questions from those who wanted to talk privately.
