To the shock of absolutely no one, John Fetterman doesn’t do all that much.
According to an analysis from the Associated Press, Fetterman’s daily schedule was blank for roughly one-third of his workdays as Pennsylvania’s Lt. Governor from January 2019, the beginning of his tenure, to May 2022, when he suffered a stroke. On days when he did work, Fetterman typically put in just four or five hours.
From The Daily Wire:
Fetterman attended ribbon-cutting ceremonies and participated in a statewide tour about the legalization of marijuana during his first year in office, which had 47 blank work days. His workload plummeted after the onset of COVID in March 2020, when Fetterman began to attend 45-minute morning meetings focused on the virus response. He seldom participated in the meetings, even though he was charged with leading a task force intended to evaluate the disparities in COVID policy, which eventually produced a 32-page report.
The official would often take media interviews after the morning meetings and sometimes skipped commonwealth business in the process. By 2021, Fetterman had 115 work days with no activities enumerated, while the records show he only worked 11 hours between the end of June to the middle of September. He had 70 blank days on his schedule between the beginning of 2022 and his hospitalization in May.
The former mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, nevertheless made $179,000 per year in his position. He affirmed in a statement to the Associated Press that he was able to have “an impact beyond the prescribed power of a given office.”
Probably the easiest job he ever had next to freeloading off mom and dad Fetterman… John Fetterman Made $179,000 As Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor. His Work Calendar Was Often Blank. | The Daily Wire https://t.co/KSZpK31Ipj
