Five Percent Of Indiana Delegates No Show For Roll Call Vote
One would think a delegate to a national nominating convention of either party could at least show up for the roll call vote for nominating the presidential candidate. Apparently four of Indiana's 85 delegates to the Democratic National Convention had more important things to do than show up for the roll call vote according to WISH-TV's Jim Shella. That's 5% of the delegation! And one of the 85 delegates who cast a vote doesn't even live in Indiana. That was former Indiana Democratic Chairman Joe Andrew, a Maryland resident. He was making up for the fact that he failed to cast a vote in the Democratic primaries this year.
