Graves on Not Voting on Fiscal Cliff Bill

Northern Missouri Congressman Sam Graves says he missed Tuesday night’s big vote on the fiscal cliff because he was “unavoidably detained”.
Graves, however, entered a short statement into the Congressional Record about his absence.
“Mr. Speaker, on rollcall No. 659, I was unavoidably detained. Had I been present, I would have voted “no.”
No reason was stated for his delay.
Graves would have been the third ‘no’ vote from the Missouri Congressional delegation.
The other Missouri Members voting ‘no’, included Rep. Vicky Hartzler (Mo-4) and Rep. Todd Akin (Mo-2) and Rep. Billy Long (Mo-7).
The other five Members of the Missouri delegation voted for the measure. (see previous post)
