SALT LAKE CITY -- Congressman Jason Chaffetz said he is withdrawing his support for Donald Trump Friday after a video surfaced showing the Republican candidate for president making vulgar remarks in 2005 about touching and kissing women without their consent.
Chaffetz, a Republican representing Utah's Third Congressional District, appeared on Fox 13 News at Nine Friday, saying: "I'm out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine."
Rep. Chaffetz said he and his wife have a 15-year-old daughter, and he said if he can't look her in the eye and tell her about what Trump said he can't endorse the man.
While Chaffetz said he isn't sure who he will vote for, he said he won't be voting for Hillary Clinton and added that it's a shame Mike Pence isn't at the top of the ticket. He also said Trump's response to the criticism was an apology for getting caught, not an apology for his behavior.
Earlier Friday, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert also reacted to the footage and stated he would not vote for Donald Trump.

So is Jason going to endorse Hillary?
So these buffoons are A OK with Hillary Clinton then..when MILLIONS of refugees enter America I dont want to hear these a-holes crying about it
As I said, before, “Forget it jake It’s Romneytown!”
He’s on the phone on CNN right now.
What an effing pussy.
F*ck you Chaffetz, you cultist POS
Soooo, how would he feel if his 15 year old daughter was on the Lolita Express with Bill? Then have Hillary threaten the little bimbo?
Jason Chaffetz: You disgust me more than you know. STFU!!!
What a wuss! Guess he never talked like that huh?
The vast majority of males talk like this to other men about women.
And women also talk in sexual terms to each other about men.
Those who say otherwise would be lying.
Surely Shrillary will bring it up in the debate...
Trump can simply say to Shrillary in the debate:
-—Its interesting that Hillary is accusing me of having a typical male conversation about women yet she defended her husband who used his positions of power to have many affairs with women while he was married to you. And some have alleged he raped them. You didnt stand for womens rights at all. The irony here is laughable that you’re now accusing me of male conversation in poor taste.
Meanwhile, you establishment types stand aside and let criminals take over.
How will you explain that to your wife and daughter, Chaffetz?
It is the people and not the politicians who choose our presidents. On election day, only the people matter. Do you know any regular people who are abandoning ship? I don’t.
All the self righteous pricks are showing their colors.
We're way beyond talk of election here. We all need to focus on building stages in Washington d.c. for the treason trials. We will need 1000’s of gallows
This is a major move by Republicans to abandon Trump. Such a scary world.
Every one of them who withdraws their “endorsement” is a traitor and needs to be viewed as such.
These politicians (Ryan and this “gem”) are not stupid. They fully realize their statements are treasonous, as it aids HRC and the Globalists.
Therefore, IMO, they are just as guilty as the Clinton-Bush Crime Families. They are just a different “flavor” of traitor. They operate under the Sanctimonious Flag.
I spit on them and their sanctimonious treason.
When has morality become the dEciding issue of a campaign?
scandalous behaviour and DC are joined at the hips.
If this is Chaffetz’ reaction, then it appears to me that the House Government Oversight Committee is a farce.
How could Chaffetz be so familiar with the level of corruption the Clintons have inflicted and not still be determined to vote for whoever is most likely to defeat her?
Either his priorities are really, really messed up, or what he’s been doing on Oversight is purely for show.
The Grindr representative is busy tonight...
