Democrat Congressman Mondaire Jones played hooky from his voting duties, and he faked his own excuse letter.
Wrote Mondaire, “I am unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency.”
He needed that note because the House proxy voting rules require a signed letter before the beginning of the first vote to include, “an affirmative statement that because of the public health emergency the Member is unable to physically attend…”
In Rep. Mondaire’s case, the “public health emergency” was his need to hang out with wealthy jet setters in France and attend HBO star Issa Rae’s wedding in the south of France.
So, instead of filling the seat his constituents elected him to, Rep. Jones was caught on Instagram (without a COVID mask!) boozing with stars and celebs. Interestingly, while he was caught red-handed in an outright lie, Rep. Jones didn’t appear to want to hide his presence at the wedding.
Said Jones’ staffer, “It’s hard to tell what the Post is more offended by, Mondair Jones voting against Republicans multiple times or Mondaire Jones attending the wedding of his close friend…Rep. Jones has no apologies for his votes against the GOP or being with his good friend during the most important week of her life…”
Obviously, the staffer forgot to apologize for his boss’s lying excuses and betrayal of his constituents.
But Jones isn’t the only member of Congress signing false statements. Representatives of both sides of the aisle have abused the proxy voting rule to get away from the DC swamp.
And given that the head swamp creature is Nancy Pelosi, who can blame them?
