On February 28, Barbara Comstock (R) missed two votes in order to get her picture taken with a man that she said was “vile” and “disgusting” only fourth months earlier. Dump Comstock has the scoop:
Comstock missed two procedural votes related to HR 998 (The SCRUB Act). These were real recorded votes, unlike the voice votes she routinely misses, but then likes to takes credit for. The first vote she missed was at 2:11 PM followed by another vote at 2:18 PM. Comstock, however, decided that it was more important to attend a signing ceremony at the White House for her one page bill that does nothing.
Comstock is routinely mocked by her constituents for refusing to hold a town hall and attempting to justify this with an absurd number of photo ops. So it’s only appropriate that the Queen of Photo Ops miss a couple of votes for the ultimate photo with Trump.
Check out the Dump Comstock article for full details and ongoing coverage of why she has missed some of these other votes (HINT: she is known for raising a lot of money).
