Sessions (above) and Fitzpatrick missed the swearing-in ceremony Wednesday when they attended an event at the Capitol Visitor Center.

Slaughter persisted, questioning whether other lawmakers had also failed to take the oath. “Are we sure we’re through here?” she asked. “Are there any other people who decided not to take the oath?”

Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) also missed taking the oath of office Wednesday. A spokesman said he was in Oregon taking care of a district matter and that he was sworn in Thursday morning. He did not participate in any votes before taking the oath.
