In an unrelated incident, Ohio Republican Congressman Steve Chabot had police seize a citizen’s camera after he tried to record one of Chabot’s answers at a tax payer financed town hall meeting. At the end of the meeting, the police confiscated two video cameras.
Here is the Chabot story from Progress Ohio.

Politicus USA Excerpt:
It is outrageous that in Rep. Chabot’s mind a citizen does not have the right to film a public event on public property that he and other taxpayers are funding. Rep. Chabot and the other House Republicans who are finding creative ways to mute or exclude their constituents are afraid to engage in democracy. These events aren’t town halls. They are monologues, and Rep. Chabot is abusing his position to keep them that way.
Both of these incidents (Ryan's and Chabots) are stunning examples as to the levels of government-sponsored intimidation and harrassment Republicans will rise to in an obvious effort to censor the citizenry and control opposing speech.
