Stockman Vows Opposition To $1 Trillion Omnibus Then Skips Vote

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) strongly opposed Congress passing a $1.102 trillion spending bill but when it came time to vote, he didn’t follow through.

Ahead of the vote Stockman, who is running to unseat Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), made clear how he would vote on the bill.

But when it came time to vote, Stockman didn’t. The Texas congressman is in the congressional record as one of seven lawmakers who didn’t vote.

As the Austin American-Statesman notes, this is becoming a regular occurrence for him. For almost a week now Stockman has missed every vote in his chamber, starting on January 10.
