With Congress not known for workaholism, the least its members can do is show up for votes. According to ProPublica, Sen. Jerry Moran had missed 4.1 percent of votes this year through Oct. 31 (far better than his 7.3 percent rate since he moved to the Senate in 2011, but still enough to tie him in 14th place for absenteeism). The other Kansans’ rates of missed votes this year: Sen. Pat Roberts, 1 percent; Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, and Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler/Hutchinson, both 1.5 percent; Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Overland Park, 0.7 percent; and Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, zero percent. – Rhonda Holman
