On Thursday, the Boston Herald reported that Senator Jeanne Shaheen had "skipped out on nearly half of the public hearings held by the [Senate Foreign Relations Committee] over the last two years, including one where counterterrorism officials warned of the emerging ISIS danger."
The paper went on to specifically state that, "Shaheen missed an April 11, 2013, hearing on U.S. policy toward Syria in which a top U.S. Treasury official in charge of terrorist financing told Senate committee members that a new terrorist group, ISIS, had sprung up, 'underscoring the danger this group poses for Syria and the world."
Also according to the Boston Herald, "the panel has held 30 full committee hearings in this congressional session, according to committee records, and Shaheen was not listed as being there at 11 hearings in which a report was issued. In three other hearings in which reports weren't released, Shaheen did not appear to show up either, according to committee video and transcripts. In the 2011-2012 congressional session, Shaheen appeared to miss nine of 30 committee hearings, for a total of 23 over the last four years, according to records."
