Carson Skips Out On Votes Today
U.S. Rep. Andre Carson is living up to his grandmother's tendency to miss a lot of votes in the U.S. House of Representatives despite campaign promises to the contrary. Carson missed every recorded vote taken in the House today, bringing the total number of votes he's missed to date to seven, or about 7% of the total votes. At least his grandmother had her health problems as an excuse for missing votes. Carson's excuse is politics. Carson missed two earlier votes while raising money for his congressional campaign. He spent today campaigning instead of tending to the people's business. More politics as usual from The Seed.
