Perfect Attendance in the House
While the news media makes much of lawmakers who miss a large percentage of votes in the House or Senate, less attention is paid to those who show up for every last roll call, even the ones congratulating sports teams and commemorating a week or month. A new feature on washingtonpost.com's Congress Votes Database now shows those members with perfect voting attendance, which includes 23 (as of this writing) members of the House.
Nine of the 23 perfect House voters are Republicans, including Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey, who has never had a perfect attendance record for an entire two-year Congress since being elected in 1995.
