Braley's office responds to IVH no-show

June 3, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
You may have read me giving a jab to Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, for his no-show at the Iowa Veterans Home on Memorial Day. Well, his office contacted me Friday to let me know he did have an emergency family matter to attend to Monday which is the reason he didn’t attend the holiday ceremony at IVH as scheduled. The staffer said he lost a close family member that weekend. “Rep. Braley was very disappointed to miss the Memorial Day event at the Veterans Home and he certainly plans to come back there as soon as his schedule allows,” said an email from one of his staffers. I guess that clears it up, now don’t I have egg on my face.
