LIEBERMAN HAS ONE OF THE WORST VOTING ATTENDANCE RECORDS IN THE LAST 4 CONGRESSES:Joe calls this type of information negative campaigning, others call it exposing one's record.
In the 106th Congress, Lieberman missed the 3rd most votes of any U.S. Senator. In the 108th Congress, Lieberman again missed the third most votes of any senator. And in the current 109th Congress, Lieberman has skipped the 7th most votes of any senator. [Source: Washington Post’s Senate vote counter]
LIEBERMAN HAS SKIPPED ONE OUT OF EVERY SIX VOTES IN HIS CURRENT TERM:
In just his current 6-year term, Lieberman has skipped 321 votes, or almost 17 percent of all votes. Put another way, Lieberman has skipped more than one out of every 6 votes in the last 6 years. In just the last three and a half years, that absenteeism has gone up further, as Lieberman is now skipping an average of one out of every four votes. [Source: Washington Post’s Senate vote counter]
LIEBERMAN PUTTING POLITICAL FUNDRAISING OVER CRITICAL VOTES:
The Hartford Courant reported in 2003 that "AP noted that Lieberman was en route to a Silicon Valley fundraiser when the Senate voted to pay for the war in Iraq - a war Lieberman fervently supports. And he was lunching with Democrats in Manchester, N.H., when the Senate voted to confirm Tom Ridge as head of Homeland Security."[Source: Hartford Courant, 5/4/03]
