Democrat Senator’s Chase For Campaign Cash Becomes An Issue

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was probably hoping that letting the public know on a Friday afternoon that she skipped a key meeting about the Senate’s use of the filibuster to chase campaign cash would keep the headlines to a minimum. Unfortunately for Shaheen, she made today’s front page of the Nashua Telegraph.

The New Hampshire Union Leader also took notice of her absence in a scathing editorial:

So now we know where U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was last Monday during a mandatory Senate meeting on changing the chamber’s rules regarding the filibuster. Her office admitted on Friday that she skipped the meeting to attend her own campaign’s fundraiser in New York City. Priorities, priorities.
