I'm pretty sure that she isn't able to make a good decision right now and may never be. But like others have mentioned, the "able-minded" members can't make good decisions either.
One thing that does bother me quite a bit, is that some tbi survivors are very easily manipulated. Anyone could sell my husband anything if they made it sound good. I have to make all the important decisions in our household because he is so easily swayed by others. I don't think I would want my congressperson being this type of a thinker. It really doesn't matter on a vote that isn't close, but on one that is, it would be a really big deal.
