Schultz Misses Votes

Mauro vs. Schultz: Should a person who wants to be in charge of Iowa's elections vote? That's become an issue in the race for secretary of state. Democrats point out Republican challenger, Matt Schultz skipped a number of elections, while incumbent Secretary of State Michael Mauro hasn't missed an election in a quarter of a century. Schultz misses these elections:

- 2009 School Election
- 2008 Primary Election
- 2004 School Election
- 2003 School Election
- 2003 City Election
- 2002 Primary Election
- 2002 School Election
- 2001 City Election
- 2001 School Election
- 2000 Primary Election

Here's the release that gives each man's voting record. And here's my interview with Schultz about missing votes.

Nice of Schultz to blame Mauro for Schultz choosing not to vote while in college! Real stand-up of him. The current SOS is passionate about everyone's fundamental right to participate in their government and his opponent looks like he just wants a job.

Hah! Yep, it's Culver and Mauro's fault they didn't tell you to vote when you were law school (in Nebraska). I think you were a big boy by then. Give me a break.

Yeah, let's blame Scott Moore too, Nebraska's Secretary of State at the time.

Hell, blame everyone for your terrible voting record. The Secretary of State leads by example. If you can't bother to cast an absentee ballot or drag yourself to the poll on election day, you shouldn't run for the office that's in charge of getting voters to participate.
