How Come Chet's Office, When you Call, CANNOT TELL YOU how he voted?

25 September 2006 at 10:01:13 AM

I have a MAJOR gripe about this, and it may be that ALL Congresspersons do this, I don't know. But when I call up Chet's office in Washington, which is the number to find out legislation, it almost never fails but the people who answer the phone have no clue where he is, what he's doing, whether he will be speaking on the House floor and they don't even have any kind of sheet that says HOW he voted. That's RIDICULOUS.

I can look up, for myself, via the internet, the Roll Call votes for any given bill, so it's not like I can't see, pretty quickly, how he voted and read the text of the bill. I can well understand that getting a *pretty* answer, especially when I don't agree with his vote, might require a letter that will arrive two weeks later, with some vague language to justify a position. But I CANNOT understand why the person answering the telephone cannot tell me "Chet voted X way on Bill # such and such".

I called up a bit ago to ask about how Chet voted on Bill  HR5295. Why? Because Congress took a VOICE vote and not a RECORDED vote; thus I cannot use my own 2 seconds to look it up online. I expect, when I call his office, that the person answering can at LEAST tell me WHAT he voted, or take my name and number and have someone call me back. Not according to Todd, who answered the phone-he said he could ONLY have me get a letter reply. I told him that I had gotten short replies back before from WaDC by phone and asked if the policy had CHANGED in the last couple of weeks. He said," I don't know who you spoke to before.." and implied that the person who called me back was breaking some kind of rule.

You know, the reps, including Chet Edwards WORK FOR ME. I don't think it's too much to ask that the person answering the phone be given a list of recent votes. It's not like Congress passes so dang many that it's difficult to keep up with.

I called up the Waco office to ask about it-I know they deal with casework there and have even less reason to know what Chet's voting record is. But darn it, I want an answer to what is a pretty simple question. Yes/No-HOW DID CHET VOTE ON STRIP SEARCHES OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS?
