FLORIDA Congressman Charlie Crist wrote a letter asking he be excused from attending a voting session in Washington over coronavirus concerns — but Your Content has exclusively learned the democrat was present at the postponed SpaceX launch.

The congressman said he was “unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing health emergency”

“I am unable to physically attend proceedings in the House Chamber due to the ongoing public health emergency, and I hereby grant the authority to cast my vote by proxy to the Honorable Stephanie Murphy,” Crist said in a letter, noting Rep. Murphy (D-Fl.) agreed to serve as his proxy.

But he was sure excited to attend the space launch in Florida.

“Looking forward to attending today’s historic manned SpaceX launch to the Space Station,” Rep. Crist tweeted.

“The first from American soil since 2011 and first ever on a commercial spacecraft. Huge step for space exploration and Florida!”

The tweet sparked outrage from Floridians who accuse the congressman of using the deadly pandemic as a lame excuse to watch the launch.

“Well he should at least stop getting paid until he shows up to work then,” tweeted a local pilot.

Residents also pointed out the postponement of the launch.

“Except it didn’t happen, so he skipped votes for no reason,” said Michelle Perez Exner.

“Although I was under the impression proxy vote was to be used because of an emergency.”

“Oh did they do the launch indoors? Fascinating stuff that guy Musk can pull off.”

Elizabeth Lynn added: “They need to go to work. You don’t think we Americans would like to have a job where we don’t have to show up and still get paid?! Should NOT be allowed — Do your job, that was what your were elected to do!”

The two-timing politician was previously slammed for going rogue on several occasions, including a vote supporting President Trump’s border wall.

He was one of five Democrats to vote to fund President Trump’s border wall, and the next day issued a statement saying that he opposed the wall.

What’s more, the congressman was given an A rating by the NRA in 2011, but has since fallen to an F.
