You Gotta Vote': Megyn Kelly Confronts Wisconsin Dem 'Cowering' in Illinois

News

“How is hiding out in Chicago discharging the duties of your office?”

After one Wisconsin state senator canceled his appearance on FNC's America Live Thursday afternoon because he was running from the law media, host Megyn Kelly confronted Sen. Jon Erpenbach, a Democrat currently hiding out in Chicago.

Megyn asked Erpenbach to justify his absence as the state legislature waits to vote on Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposal.  "You have to go do your job. It is not your job to leave the state and cower in Illinois," she said.  “How is hiding out in Chicago discharging the duties of your office?”

While he dismissed the notion that he was "cowering," Erpenbach insisted he and his fellow Democrats were doing their jobs, answering emails and phone calls from outside the state.

"What we do in this country is we vote. You can vote no and you can rail on the senate floor why this is wrong," Megyn insisted.  "You gotta vote, sir."
