California state legislator Christy Smith (D.) has made a habit of abstaining from controversial votes as she campaigns to unseat GOP congressman Mike Garcia.
Former representative Katie Hill (D., Calif.) made history last year when she became the youngest and highest-ranking female politician to resign due to a sex scandal. She also introduced the term “throuple” into the national discourse—something even the Democratic Party’s most prolific (male) sexual deviants, including Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, and Anthony Weiner, never managed to accomplish.
California state legislator and congressional candidate Christy Smith (D.) ignored a call to temporarily reduce her six-figure salary as state employees face pay cuts—while pushing a proxy voting bill that could allow her to skip legislative proceedings.
On their first day in Congress, the two newest GOP representatives signed a petition to force a vote on a “no-brainer” piece of legislation designed to protect infants who survive abortion.
