Tool of the Week: Proxy Ron Kind

What kind of tool claims a COVID hardship to get out of voting in person at the Capitol and then shows up at an ice cream shop for a photo op with the Silver Alert President?

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind.

Busted.

The La Crosse Democrat spent Tuesday following around President Joe Biden, who was in western Wisconsin for a dog and pony show on the massive “infrastructure” bill he’s promoting. While in La Crosse, Kind joined Biden and Gov. Tony Evers for some ice cream at The Pearl Ice Cream Parlor (coincidentally, not far from Kind’s rental property that houses a reputed massage parlor).

Busted.

As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

Despite going MIA from his day job, Kind was able to get an excused absence because he claimed the pandemic prevented him from attending Monday and Tuesday’s floor session in person. Kind was then permitted to vote on seven bills by “proxy” with the help of a rep who was present.

The Republican Party of Wisconsin blasted Proxy Ron for his troubles with the truth.

“Whether he’s claiming to be a moderate while supporting Nancy Pelosi for speaker or claiming a health emergency is causing his absence on the House floor when the entire world knows he’s at a campaign stop with the president, Ron Kind just doesn’t respect his constituents enough to tell them the truth.”

Kind’s handlers told the Journal Sentinel the congressman wasn’t dodging his responsibilities for a campaign stop. The president, they said, was on official presidential business in Kind’s town.

Besides, Sharon Abel, Kind’s communications director, said, Biden and Kind discussed COVID-19 between smiling for the cameras.

“(Kind) used this opportunity to talk to the president about the impact the ongoing pandemic has had on Wisconsin and how the recovery efforts are helping,” Abel told the newspaper. “He also had the opportunity to discuss with the president directly ways we can increase vaccination rates in Wisconsin.”

So.

What does any of that have to do with Kind being present to perform his No. 1 job requirement?

Not a thing. That’s why Ron Kind has for nearly a quarter of a century been the 3rd District’s representative by proxy.

And this week he’s Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.

1 thought on “Tool of the Week: Proxy Ron Kind

  • Kind has been leading the voters down the wrong road for far too many years, time to relieve him of his duties in 22!
    Give some new blood a chance to give back to all voters rather than just a few.
