Over at One Wisconsin Now, a crack team of researchers has analyzed Gov. Scott Walker’s schedules from August 2011 through January 2012 and come to a startling conclusion: Scott Walker has taken a hell of a lot of personal time as Governor.
Based on the calendars maintained by Gov. Walker’s office, released under the state open records law, between August 2011 and January 2012 Gov. Walker was scheduled to spend a grand total of just over 44 hours meeting with legislators or his policy staff or working on an a specific policy issue. Meanwhile, over the same time period, a whopping 614-plus hours were blocked off as “personal” time.
Just to recap, from August 2011 until January 2012 Gov. Walker spent barely more than a standard work week meeting with legislators or his policy staff or working on a specific policy issue, while he used the equivalent of 15 work weeks of personal time.
Here’s a graph illustrating just how much personal time Gov. Walker took from August 2011 until January 2012.
Considering how much personal time Gov. Walker has taken since August 2011, I can’t help but wonder what work he’s done to deserve his taxpayer-funded $144,432 yearly salary.
