Saxman skips session to stump for McCain
The House of Delegates held a “marathon 10 a.m.-to-7 p.m. floor session” on crossover eve last night, acting on dozens of bills now being passed to the State Senate.
Yet, oddly, Del. Chris Saxman’s name disappears from the recorded votes taken after 5:45 PM. Saxman missed votes on immigration measures (HB1298), child safety initiatives (HB1250) – even a resolution creating Ms. Wheelchair Virginia Day.
So where’d he go?
Turns out Saxman was about 15 minutes down Interstate 64, at the Virginia Aviation Museum for a John McCain rally. Check out the video below:
Yes, this is the same Del. Saxman who wants to limit legislators from attending political events during session.
