Not the First Time: John Lewis, Democratic Congressman, Did Skip George W. Bush’s Inauguration

From National Review [1]:

But this isn’t the first time Lewis has boycotted a presidential inauguration. According to a Washington Post article written on January 21, 2001, Lewis and other members of the Black Caucus boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration because they didn’t “believe Bush is the true elected president.” Lewis spent the day in his Atlanta district.
