Ron Kind Shirks Working for District

I wonder how many of Kind’s constituents know that some dude from Virginia was representing them in Congress.

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, a Democrat from western Wisconsin, claimed COVID-19 prevented him from traveling to Washington D.C. to vote on major bills but still found a way to eat ice cream in La Crosse with President Joe Biden.


“While millions of Wisconsinites went to work on Tuesday, Ron Kind played hooky from his responsibilities in Washington — claiming that he had to miss House votes because of COVID when he was actually getting ice cream with Joe Biden,” the state of Wisconsin Republican Party said in a statement, releasing the above photo.


In a letter to Congress, Kind wrote, on June 28, 2021, “Pursuant to House Resolution 8, I write to notify you of the designation of a proxy to cast my vote. I am unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency, and I hereby grant the authority to cast my vote by proxy to the Honorable Gerry Connolly (VA), who has agreed to serve as my proxy.”
