Sen. Schatz mans phones in lieu of government shutdown
Hawaii senator Brian Schatz helped man the phones at his Washington D.C. office.
He says he's spending a portion of each day to answer phones because the shutdown has drastically reduced his staff.
The senator's office has been forced to cease and reduce many of its normal operations like answering constituent phone calls.
