Every Tuesday, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we chat with Rep. Chaka Fattah. The Pennsylvania Democrat plays coy when asked about his best friend in Congress.
Q: Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: The Philadelphia Flyers (of course).
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone tonight (aside from your family), who would it be and why?
A: Nelson Mandela because he is an inspiration to me and millions around the globe. Despite having faced imprisonment and torture, he never vacillated in his commitment to peace, the democratic system and social equality.
