This claim is in an ad that's airing where I live - no, it's not a McCain ad, it's an ad supporting some Bill currently in the Senate. I have searched online but can find no sites supporting it or refuting it.
IF this is true, does this mean I could go to work 4 days out of 10 and still expect a raise and promotion?
Silliness aside, I've tried and came up empty. Can anyone else find a site that proves this claim right or wrong? I'd like to check it out.

Here you go: it doesn't say what the % is but if you look over it there are TONS of "Not Voting" http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/o000167/votes/page1/

It is very easy to search and find out how often he voted present as an Illinois senator and a US Senator---yes, he voted present quite often in both. In fact some sites will tell you several of the bills he voted present on--bills he should have had enough experience to make a yes or no decision. I am not starting anything--just look it up--it is pretty easy to find.
