Sen. Susan Collins has cast her 5,000th consecutive vote, a milestone in a perfect voting record that dates to her arrival in Washington in January 1997.

The Maine Republican has gone to great lengths to ensure her flawless record, once twisting her ankle while racing to the Senate floor and another time deplaning from a commercial flight to return to Capitol Hill. She also takes great care to ensure she isn't snowbound in Maine in the winter.

Thursday's vote related to a small business tax incentive bill was uneventful.

Collins says that in an era where people are frustrated with politics and have a low opinion of Congress, it's important to show she's representing Maine on each and every vote.
