In a news conference held the day after the primary election, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda Lingle accused Democrat Mazie Hirono of skipping out on her job as a U.S. House representative.

"This year, Mazie Hirono missed 127 votes in Congress," reads a press release summarizing the event. "During that same period of time, Congresswoman Hanabusa only missed one vote."

Is that true?
