Rep. Dick Gephardt (D-Mo.) has missed 162 votes in the House this year â€” 85% of the total, which has led to charges that he has abandoned his congressional duties in his pursuit of the presidency.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has seized on the absenteeism to point out that several of Gephardtâ€™s missed votes have been on legislative and policy matters that are centerpieces to his campaign.
