She’s missed how many votes?

When Shemia Fagan (D) took over a good portion of House District 48 with redistricting, she certainly didn’t take with her the work ethic of former Representative Mike Schaufler (D). Schaufler served for ten years in the Oregon House and only missed one single vote the entire time.

Now, with only a month of legislative service under her belt, The Oregonian reports Fagan has missed an astounding 18.87% of the floor votes!

We were not able to find a single instance of a legislator with a similarly deplorable record.

She claims to have taken a leave of absence from her job as a lawyer to focus on the Legislature. Then why isn’t she showing up for work? Maybe we should ask her … if only we knew how to reach her.
