Weiss was the representative for Pennsylvania’s 33rd congressional district and was a Democrat. He served from 1945 to 1946.
He was previously the representative for Pennsylvania’s 30th congressional district as a Democrat from 1943 to 1944; and the representative for Pennsylvania’s 31st congressional district as a Democrat from 1941 to 1942.
From Jan 1941 to Dec 1945, Weiss missed 53 of 408 roll call votes, which is 13.0%. This is much worse than the median of 4.4% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Dec 1945. 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.
