Andre Carson missed another Congressional vote

Andre Carson
during the special election campaign promises to never miss a vote

Well, well, well, Andre Carson's Congressional voting record (rather lack thereof) is keeping up with that of his late grandmother. Now even the democrats over at Blue Indiana are reporting on his broken promise to never miss a vote. And not surprisingly, the Indiana Minority Report covers the story too.

However, what the voters should be asking is why presidential candidate Barack Obama, who claims to reject big interest PAC money, endorses Andre Carson? Andre Carson's campaign fund is mostly made up of PAC money. In fact $512k of his $740k campaign chest is from PACs which include Muslim interest groups.

Does this mean that Obama thinks it is just fine for members of Congress to take big PAC contributions, but it is not ok for a presidential candidate? Or does it mean that Obama does not look very closely at the people with whom he associates and/or endorses?
