There’s been an official inquiry to the House Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate one Democratic Representative.
Charlie Crist of Florida.
Crist is looking to unseat Ron DeSantis as Governor of Florida in the near future, but he may run into problem before he can even get there.
An ethics watchdog group claims they have the evidence to show that Crist has been abusing the proxy vote process.
Members of Congress are allowed to vote by proxy during COVID because of the “public health emergency.”
Crist has cited this policy as the reason for voting by proxy over 100 times during the first few months of 2022.
Charlie, you were elected to do a job. You get paid to do the job. DO THE JOB.
Crist has not been missing votes because of COVID concerns.
He’s been out campaigning on days he should have been voting.
“However, contrary to Crist’s statement to the House Clerk, it is evident that the true reason he is voting by proxy and virtually attending committee hearings is unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rather, the reason is so he can campaign for governor. On days he has voted by proxy, Crist has attended public events for his gubernatorial campaign.”
If this clown somehow makes it to a showdown with DeSantis, it’s going to be a bloodbath.
