Schweikert brewed up a beverage on his office’s personal coffee machine in a video posted by Arizona’s KPNX news anchor Brahm Resnik.
Schweikert bought the machine — which he joked is “a bipartisan coffee maker,” available for use by everyone, including the cleaning crew — early in his congressional career.
"I paid for it with my own personal money,” he said, adding, "Think of the benefit to the taxpayers: The staff is well-wired all day long."
Schweikert's office has a selection of syrup flavors for the coffee drinks, ranging from hazelnut to pumpkin spice, but the congressman identified Hershey's chocolate syrup as his "all-time favorite."
