Ohio Dem Senate Candidate Tim Ryan Running Against Trump-Backed J.D. Vance, Claims Health Crisis Prevents Him to Vote in Congress, Abuses Proxy Voting Rules and Campaigns Instead

Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan sent a letter to the Clerk of the House on Tuesday giving authority to Rep. Don Beyer to vote on his behalf.

He cited “the ongoing public health emergency” as the reason why he could not be in person to vote.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

Pursuant to House Resolution 8, I write to notify you of the designation of a proxy to cast my vote.  I am unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency, and I hereby grant the authority to cast my vote by proxy to the Honorable Rep. Don Beyer (VA-8), who has agreed to serve as my proxy.

Sincerely,
Tim Ryan
Member of Congress

However, according to his actions, he wasn’t worried about the health emergency at all.  This was a lie.  On the same day that Ryan had someone else vote for him (two votes were cast on Ryan’s behalf) he posted photos showing him out on the campaign trail.

Trump-backed Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance called out Ryan over this saying in a tweet:

“Tim Ryan has spent 20 years in Washington, DC living off the taxpayers’ dime…This career politician fraud doesn’t deserve a promotion in November, he deserves a pink slip.”

Tim Ryan is facing J.D. Vance for the key Ohio US Senate seat.
