Description

The Associated Press reveals that five-term congresswoman, Karen McCarthy, has a pattern of skipped votes, high staff turnover and questionable office spending. For years she had missed important votes on the floor and in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. She hired, fired and lost aides at a seemingly dysfunctional rate. Her legislative record shows she passed only one bill in eight and a half years. And she was trying to stick taxpayers with a campaign consultant's bill in violation of House rules. McCarthy announced her retirement one month after AP broke the allegations.
