Déjà vu Driskell skips Lansing votes on same day as her DC fundraiser

March 23, 2016

dcccMI-07 candidate and State Representative Gretchen Driskell is up to her old tricks again.  She skipped work in Lansing yesterday on the same day as her DC fundraiser as a member of DCCC’s highly unsuccessful “Red to Blue” Program.

This isn’t the first time Driskell put her congressional campaign ahead of her constituents.  In October she was the only state representative to miss a $1 billion road funding vote because she was campaigning for Congress in DC.  Hypocrite Driskell missed that vote shortly after attacking Tim Walberg on transportation funding.

NRCC Comment:  “Gretchen Driskell has once again chosen to rub elbows with the DC elite at a Washington fundraiser instead of doing her job in Lansing.  It’s sad that Driskell continues to shamelessly put herself ahead of the constituents who expect her to represent them in Lansing.” –NRCC Spokesman Chris Pack
