Walker Stapleton Refuses to Work When it Rains

Does he melt if he gets wet or something? Today, video surfaced of Republican candidate for Colorado Governor, and occasional State Treasurer, Walker Stapleton telling an audience that he doesn’t show up to work if it’s raining. No, really. He said that. Even worse, this isn’t the first time Stapleton has come under fire for not doing his job. In fact, just last night, Stapleton skipped an important meeting of the Public Employees’ Retirement Association (PERA). Stapleton is on the PERA Board of Trustees.

 

“Maybe Walker Stapleton should buy himself an umbrella and get to work instead of collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck for staying at home when there is bad weather,” said American Bridge spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Colorado deserves a Governor who shows up to work rain or shine, not a politician like Walker Stapleton who doesn’t do his job if it means he gets a little wet.”
