We already knew John Fetterman kept a light schedule as Lieutenant Governor, bilking Pennsylvania taxpayers for his $180,000 salary without showing up for a work. A new report sheds more light on Fetterman’s attendance at constitutionally-mandated boards and commissions, where Fetterman barely showed up to work. What’s worse: in many instances, Fetterman skipped meetings pertaining to economic development or veterans’ affairs to go on vacation or conduct national media interviews.
Since 2019, Fetterman missed 11 out of 13 meetings for the Pennsylvania Military Community Enhancement Commission and Local Government Advisory Committee, according to meeting records and calendars obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. He missed several meetings in October 2020 on days he gave interviews to MSNBC, Australia’s Sky News, and the progressive “Pod Save America” podcast, the records show. He missed a military commission session in October 2019 to travel to his hometown for “family stuff” the following day. He skipped a local government advisory committee meeting in June while on vacation on the Jersey Shore. On some days he skipped committee meetings, Fetterman’s calendars are blank.
It’s the latest example of Fetterman’s truancy in public office.
“John Fetterman lived off of his parents until he found a new source to finance his lazy lifestyle: Pennsylvania taxpayers. If Fetterman failed to show up for constitutionally-mandated meetings for veterans or economic development, why should we expect he’ll do anything different in the Senate?” -SLF Communications Director Jack Pandol
