Rep. Charlie Crist was just sworn into office and he has already missed a key vote in the U.S. Congress that objects to the passage of Resolution 2334, an anti-Israeli United Nations Security Council measure.
Crist was in DC being sworn in on Jan. 5, but for some reason, could not make it to House floor to cast this vote.
Here is what Crist stated regarding his missed vote:
“This evening, I planned to vote in favor of H. Res. 11, but was unfortunately delayed in arriving to the House floor,…”As a cosponsor of this measure, I believe it is vital that the United Nations Security Council be sent a clear message that biased, one-sided resolutions targeting Israel are unacceptable and only make it more difficult for negotiations to resume between Israelis and Palestinians.”
