With All Those Media Appearances, Who’s Got Time to Vote?
Not Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). Her quest for celebrity, it seems, has trumped her duties as the elected representative of Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District.
The Minnesota Independent reports:
An analysis by the Minnesota Independent shows that Bachmann has missed more votes than any member of Minnesota’s congressional delegation in the 111th Congress — even after subtracting votes missed when Bachmann left to spend time with an ill family member. Twenty of the 47 remaining votes Bachmann missed occurred on days when the Sixth District Republican had media appearances scheduled.
