Sen. Kay Hagan admits skipping committee meeting on ISIS for fundraiser

While Democrats have spent a good portion of this election season’s debates trying to distance themselves from President Obama, one sure-fire way to fail at the attempt is to skip out on committee meetings to attend fundraisers instead.

During Tuesday night’s debate in North Carolina, Hagan dodged questions about her committee attendance.

Key in #NCsenDebate – Kay Hagan STILL refuses to say why she skipped > 50% of Armed Svs Hearings AND Classified #ISIS hearings. Why? #NCsen

Kay Hagan repeatedly tied to Obama, can't explain being MIA on #ISIS & refuses to say why she missed 50% of hearings #NCsen #NCsenDebate

At a press conference following the debate, however, Hagan admitted to reporters that she missed at least one meeting to attend a fundraiser.

How many more Armed Services Committee hearings did Hagan skip for fundraisers?? #ncsen #ncpol

The worst possible answer for @kayhagan was the correct answer. She skipped an important hearing on ISIS for a fundraiser. #ncsen #ncpol

Been a ton of speculation that @kayhagan MIGHT have skipped Armed Services hearings for a fundraiser – then she just came out and said it!

Is skipping briefings and committee meetings a bad thing?
