Markey misses a string of votes in House

Senate hopeful Edward J. Markey, who has faced scrutiny for his light schedule of public campaign appearances, has not cast a vote in Congress since May 9, missing the last 40 votes before the chamber, according to records from the Clerk of the House.

This week, Markey missed voting on 23 matters, including legislation to approve the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, a project he has said he strongly opposes.
