Christina Hall Detroit Free Press Published 9:26 p.m. UTC Jul 12, 2018 Even House Speaker Paul Ryan isn't immune from rodents chomping on his vehicle's engine wiring. At a speech Thursday in Washington, Ryan noted that a family of woodchucks had eaten away at the wiring on his Chevrolet Suburban over the winter, according to reports in the Washington Times and the Washington Examiner.
