Representative Michael Turner (R-OH 3rd) was so busy trying to get “God” back on US Flag Certificates that he couldn’t even do his job.

The House voted 405-2 on Tuesday on legislation to extend the federal moratorium on Internet access taxes by four years …
The bill, H.R. 3678, would bar states and localities from imposing such fees until Nov. 1, 2011. The dissenting votes were cast by Democrat Anna Eshoo of California, who authored a bill for a permanent ban, and Republican Michael Turner of Ohio.
A spokesman for Turner confirmed late in the day that his boss supports the bill and accidentally voted “no” on the legislation. “He has to go to the House floor and correct the record,” said the staffer, who called the accident “regrettable.”
Turner may have been distracted by a particularly busy day on Capitol Hill. He appeared at a midday ceremony to honor an Eagle Scout, whose flag request led to the Architect of the Capitol reversing his policy and deciding to allow “God” on flag certificates.
