Northeast Indiana's new Congressman Marlin Stutzman mistakenly skipped a key vote in the U.S. House last week.

The Republican said his Blackberry was turned off and he missed voting on the "Dream Act," which would give young illegal immigrants a path to legal status.

The bill narrowly passed, and is now tied up in the Senate.

Stutzman would have voted against it.

This was the first vote he missed since entering Congress last month to finish Mark Souder's term.
