21. This guy also has a really nice FB page (he's basically a libertarian)
Obviously I disagree strongly with the economic side of his libertarianism, but his Facebook page (not sure if I'm allowed to link it) has explanations of every single vote he makes. This is useful for his direct constituents (I'm not one) in that they know exactly why their rep voted how he did. It's also useful for everyone when trying to figure out exactly what is going on in the House (what's being voted on, etc.) as it's a lot clearer (to me at least) than the official government sources.

Fun note: he got lots of hate from his Tea Party fans on FB for voting against the "In God We Trust" thing recently (and some love from his more Libertarian fans and even liberals for that vote)
