Fetterman records show illumination scheme while Pa. lieutenant gov.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — In his military operation for a crucial U.S. Senate seat, Democrat John Fetterman takes commend for reinventing Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor's office, transforming it from a political pit place an extremity to into a "bully pulpit" from which he's state-of-the-art progressive causes.

Records from Fetterman's quartet years inside office, however, provide a different painting of his hour dated inside the $179,000-a-year elected job. They show Fetterman typically kept a illumination labour scheme accompanied by every one one other accompanied by was regularly away from condition business, including presiding over the condition Senate, which is one of his leader duties, according to an Associated Press analysis of his done every one one day calendars accompanied by every one one other accompanied by attendance records.

The analysis found that Fetterman's done every one one day scheme was blank all over violently one-third of workdays from January 2019, when he earliest took office, to May of this year, when he suffered a solemn stroke. Even on days where his scheme showed he was active, a representative labour day for Fetterman lasted inside the centre of quartet accompanied by every one one other accompanied by five hours, the records show.

The findings, which focus entirely on his tenure earlier to his stroke, are notable since Fetterman points to his hour dated while lieutenant executive while a leading credential inside his Senate campaign. And while his provide for a seat that could sway the Senate majority becomes additional competitive, some Democrats privately fret that Fetterman is proving a lackluster candidate accompanied by every one one other accompanied by losing ground inside the campaign.

Fetterman's military operation didn't report the gaps inside his schedule. In a statement, his spokesman, Joe Calvello, said that "this report is a misleading accompanied by every one one other accompanied by inaccurate reflection of John's real scheme that completely fails to capture the breadth of his official labour accompanied by every one one other accompanied by his accomplishments."

Fetterman didn't respond to gathering requests, nevertheless he said inside a statement that he's "shown I tin have an impact on the a lengthy way side of the prescribed ability of a specified office."

"As lieutenant governor," he said, "my record of showing up accompanied by every one one other accompanied by shaking up this office has transformed the Board of Pardons, saved Pennsylvania millions inside taxpayer dollars, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by grown support inside our condition for defending LGBTQIA+ rights, weed legalization, union workers, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by raising the lowest flat wage."

The position of position of employment of lieutenant executive is typically a stopover for politicians seeking higher office accompanied by every one one other accompanied by regularly comes accompanied by restricted duties. In Pennsylvania, the main legal responsibilities for a lieutenant executive are presiding over Senate sessions, chairing the Board of Pardons accompanied by every one one other accompanied by heading up the governor's crisis management committee.

There's no indeed indeed suggestion that Fetterman's absences prevented the condition from conducting important business, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by his ceremonial calendars may not capture the filled range of his activities.

And, due at least inside small part to Fetterman's criminal justice advocacy, the condition agency that handles applications for pardons accompanied by every one one other accompanied by commutations of actuality sentences saw a surge inside activity while he chaired it. That produced a large jump inside grants of clemency by Gov. Tom Wolf.

Fetterman's defenders speak the pandemic sapped opportunities for him to lay clasp of a additional operative small portion accompanied by every one one other accompanied by note that Wolf did not call on him to lay clasp of on a bigger workload.

"I exist convinced by he ... would have to liked to," condition Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa, D-Allegheny, said of Fetterman. "Every hour dated (Wolf) called on John to communicate, he did."

In a statement, Wolf said Fetterman's office has "limited responsibilities" nevertheless called him "a dedicated condition servant who has supported my priorities over the past quartet years."

Fetterman's done every one one day schedules provide a window into his hour dated inside office, detailing his obligations including meetings, phone calls, hearings accompanied by every one one other accompanied by flat operate hour dated to events around the state.

In 2019, Fetterman's earliest year inside office, he regularly attended ribbon cuttings accompanied by every one one other accompanied by conducted a statewide listening tour focused on legalizing marijuana. Still, on 47 different labour days he had nothing on his schedules.

His workload plummeted following the coronavirus pandemic hit, the schedules show.

For months, starting inside March 2020, his labour days regularly consisted of a earlier to noon gathering focused on the pandemic that typically lasted 45 minutes, occasionally followed by interviews accompanied by local accompanied by every one one other accompanied by national journalists. Occasionally he would attend virtual events.

But Fetterman excessively did not lay clasp of an operative small portion accompanied by every one one other accompanied by seldom participated inside the done every one one day Cabinet meetings, flat though he was tapped to head a position of position of employment ability on disparities inside the COVID-19 response. It produced a 32-page report.

In some cases, he booked national media interviews all over times he or else had condition labour to attend to, including presiding over the Senate, or pandemic labour category meetings.

During a one-month hour dated beginning inside October 2020, the vast majority of events listed on Fetterman's calendar were interviews accompanied by national or Washington-based report outlets, accompanied by a scattering of official duties accompanied by every one one other accompanied by events mixed in, the records show.

In 2021, Fetterman's calendars showed 115 labour days accompanied by no indeed indeed activities or events listed. That includes a hour dated that stretched from the extremity of June to mid-September where Fetterman's schedules were mostly blank, listing a total of concerning 11 hours worked all over that period.

In the earliest fifty per cent of of 2022, lasting up to his stroke, there are almost 70 days accompanied by nothing on listed on his schedule.

Fetterman's labour ethic has been a persistent focus of assault inside the Senate military operation by Republicans who characterize the 53-year-old while a trust fund beneficiary who never had a paying position of position of employment until he was elected lieutenant governor. Fetterman's father was a partner inside an indemnity firm.

Asked on a radio program Wednesday to respond to the claim that he'd "never worked a day inside your life," Fetterman said it wasn't true.

For 13 years he was the mayor of Braddock, a tiny, struggling steel town of 2,000 residents outer external outside Pittsburgh.

He called actuality mayor "a full-time job, fighting to convey (back) a inhabitants that was abandoned, left-hand behind." Fetterman has excessively told of employed for an indemnity firm inside Connecticut inside the 1990s. He excessively held a position of position of employment helping young people obtain GED certificates.

Still, Fetterman's 2015 monetary disclosure when he earliest ran for U.S. Senate showed that he was paid fair $1,800 a year to exist Braddock's mayor accompanied by every one one other accompanied by lived off $54,000 specified to him by his parents that year alone. Property records show that he bought his place of residence inside Braddock from his feminine sibling for $1.

That has fueled a 25-second digital ad from the military operation of Republican nominee Mehmet Oz that touts the myth "Freeloading Fetterman" over the vague likeness of a male inside a black hoodie — Fetterman wears hoodies fair concerning everywhere he goes. The narrator finishes, "Thank goodness for daddy's deep pockets."

At a rally inside Wilkes-Barre last month, former President Donald Trump called Fetterman "a spoiled accompanied by every one one other accompanied by entitled socialist loser who leeched off his parents' money — you know he lives on his parents' money — until he was 49 years old."

It's a dash of censure earliest used by Fetterman's Democratic rivals inside past campaigns, whispering that he blew off city council meetings by preference than face critics while serving while mayor of Braddock.

Records show that Fetterman skipped at least 53 city council meetings all over his 13 years while the town's mayor, or violently one-third of the meetings held all over his tenure.

It's a propensity that extends to his duties presiding over the Pennsylvania condition Senate.

In 2020, Fetterman did not preside all over 27 of the 53 Senate sessions that year, according to Senate journals, a hour dated when the chamber adapted to the pandemic by letting numerous members fasten to sessions into with every one other accompanied by not here of video links.

Fetterman did not show up for one-third of the Senate's 59 gathering days inside 2021. This year, he was inside attendance for 15 of 16 gathering days earlier to suffering a blow inside May.

He came spine to preside over the Senate's gathering on Sept. 21 — at that hour dated skipped the following place of set of two days of Senate sessions while he returned to the military operation trail.

Fetterman's military operation attributes 20 of his absences inside 2020 to COVID-19 restrictions — although that did not place an extremity to a number of senators from attending sessions inside person. It excessively attributed 10 absences to conflicts accompanied by Board of Pardons meetings or other official business.
