Weldon flubs the number of Connie Mack's missed votes

U.S. Rep. Connie Mack IV, R-Fort Myers, has been criticized for missing votes while campaigning for U.S. Senate.

A Republican rival, former U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon of Indialantic near Melbourne, aired a robocall recently that picked up that story line:

"How angry would you be if you hired someone to do a job and they only showed up half the time? You know -- they only cut half the grass, or they charged you for four hours when they really only worked two? Well, that’s what candidate Connie Mack has done. This year in Congress he has missed almost half of his votes, and now he not only wants to be paid for not showing up, he wants to be promoted into the U.S. Senate."

PolitiFact explores if that number was correct.

Sen Bill Nelson sponsored 115 Bills, Resolutions & Amendments in the 111 Congress, Connie Mack IV only 13

Sen Bill Nelson sponsored 109 Bills, Resolutions & Amendments in 110 Congress, Connie Mack IV only 8

If he misses 31% of his votes and does not propose legislation, what does he even do?


The relevant question is how many votes on truly significant issues did Little Lord Fauntleroy Mack IV duck.

Sadly, Weldon's campaign staff isn't bright enough to realize that or count those key votes.
