Schaumburg, IL – Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi has made a habit of voting by proxy, also known as not showing up to work. In the last year alone, well after COVID-19 vaccines and boosters were widely available, Congressman Krishnamoorthi has voted by proxy 15 times.

Krishnamoorthi claims he is an ‘independent Democrat,’ but his record, and that of the people he has had vote in his stead, shows that to be false.

So who is voting on legislation for the constituents of the 8th Congressional District? Let’s meet them.

Congressman Joe Neguse (CO-2) has voted for Raja 5 times, including on the latest Inflation Creation Act hiking taxes on families making less that $200,000 a year and unleashing an army of 87,000 new IRS agents. Neguse votes with Joe Biden 100% of the time representing Colorado’s 2nd District.

Congressman Jesus ‘Chuy’ Garcia (IL-4) is the only Illinois Congressman to fill in for Raja. Garcia votes with Biden 98.9% of the time and represents a district President Biden won by more than 60%.

Congressman Don Beyer (VA-8) represents a district President Biden won by 56.5%, votes with Biden 100% of the time and has voted on Raja’s behalf twice.
