Senator Kamala Harris couldn’t even be bothered to show up to the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the United States Supreme Court. Due to the fact that she was running for Vice President of the United States, she blew off her responsibilities as a senator.
She did appear via videoconference but this is not a standard for a United States Senator who is on the Judiciary Committee. It’s important to note that she will have to go back to Washington if she plans to vote on the confirmation hearings.
According to Lawfare, “Under current House and Senate rules, neither chamber nor their various committees, can vote or go about their other work while members are not physically present in the Capitol.”
If she plans to have a voice for her constituents and be responsible with the office of what she was elected she will have to go back to Washington. It’s unclear if she will go back for the committee vote or just the final vote.
