What a U.S. Congressman Can Do For Dads

Interview with Jimmy Gomez (& his infant son) / America's Most Famous Lead Dad

Hosted by Paul Sullivan

Congressman Jimmy Gomez, who represents Los Angeles in the House of Representatives, put his 4-month-old son Hodge into a baby sling and voted with him for Speaker of the House – again and again. What began as a proud father moment at the start of the week of voting became a family necessity for the Democrat: his wife, a deputy mayor for the city of L.A., had to go back to work and the new parents didn’t have any childcare. Listen to the Congressman’s thoughts on improving childcare in America, paid paternity leave and whether he’d ask a Republican to babysit.
