From Dec 1925 to Jun 1926, Flaherty missed 44 of 68 roll call votes, which is 64.7%. This is much worse than the median of 15.9% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Jun 1926. The chart below reports missed votes over time.
We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
