Rep. Charles Rangel missed 103 votes since February 9, Bobby Cuza reports.
The biggest vote Rangel missed, arguably, was on March 29 on the federal budget, which Rangel deplored in a video message.
Other New York representatives who missed that vote include Maurice Hinchey of the mid-Hudson Valley and Greg Meeks of Queens.
Hinchey is not seeking another term in office and Meeks, according to a spokesperson, is dealing with a private family matter.
Rangel's prolonged absence from Congress is due to a back injury he suffered, apparently, while helping his wife move a couch.
Rangel is expected to attend an April 10 event at his district office in Harlem, according to his spokeswoman.
