Asked About First Votes in Congress, New Illinois Rep Is Stumped
Newly Elected #IL02 Congresswoman Robin Kelly Can’t Remember her First Two Votes (Legal Insurrection)
Robin Kelly, newly elected Democrat Congresswoman in Jesse Jackson, Jr’s Illinois district, has already cast two votes.
But, a few hours after these votes, she could not answer when a radio host asked her for what she voted.
In an interview Friday on local Chicago radio station WGN, Kelly was asked:
Radio host: “And what were your first two votes?”
Robin Kelly: “Oh, you had to ask me that hard question. One was on, um, rules, and, um, the other one was more — that’s a very good question — um, uh, regulatory.”
Radio host: “Close enough for the first day in office, I guess.”
