Ralph Abraham Misses Vote to Give Back Pay to Constituents Not Getting Paid During Shutdown

No-show Congressman Ralph Abraham missed a vote today on giving back pay to federal workers furloughed due to the government shutdown. Abraham, who has insisted he is not campaigning during the shutdown, missed the vote to attend yet another fundraiser for his campaign for Governor.

“Congressman Abraham clearly doesn’t give a damn about the thousands of Louisianans who aren’t getting paid because of this pointless shutdown,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Congressman Abraham just sent a message to every Louisiana resident not getting paid that he cares more about campaigning for higher office than helping them pay their bills and feed their families.”
