From the Daily News:
A Queens lawmaker under fire for living in a posh Long Island mansion instead of her district admits she has another problem - her "abysmal" attendance in Albany.
Assemblywoman Ann-Margaret Carrozza told the Daily News Editorial Board Monday that "personal issues" led her to show up for work just 36% of the time this year.
Carrozza, who pulls in a $79,500 annual base salary plus a $16,500 stipend as deputy majority whip, has attended 25 of 69 legislative session days this year, Assembly records show.
Last year, she made it to Albany 61% of the time.
"If I had to grade it," Carrozza said of her attendance, "I would say that the last two years were abysmal."
