Watchdog: Mayor Pete’s Available 24/7 – Except When Dems, GOP Need Him

  • Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg defensively declared that everyone knows that in a job such as his, he must be available 24/7.
  • It turns out, however, that Mayor Pete was turning down requests for calls and zoom meetings with both Democrat and Republican lawmakers while he was home with his new little family, according to information released by government watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust.
  • Not only was Pete not available when his assistance was needed, he failed to issue a formal delegation of authority, causing some chaos as important decisions still needed to be made during his leave.
