"Just so that the simpletons that sometimes write for Huffington Post understand, I don't want the government having all that information," said Gohmert.
"With a point of personal privilege, my son writes for The Huffington Post," replied Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) to laughs. Frank Sensenbrenner, a fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, has blogged for the site on Italian politics and the Vatican.
Gohmert tried to recover. "Well then, maybe he is not one of the simpletons I was referring to," he said.
"He does have a Ph.D.," continued Sensenbrenner.
