Newspaper Examines Auditor’s Hours

A newspaper reports that Nebraska’s state auditor sometimes spends more of his Lincoln workday at a sports bar than at his Capitol office.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that a three-month investigation of state auditor Charlie Janssen revealed late-morning arrivals to work, beer drinking at lunches lasting three hours or more and several afternoon absences from his office.

The 47-year-old Republican responds by saying he is not a perfect man and acknowledges the reports are true. Jansen apologizes to Nebraskans and says he will take steps to make changes to his personal and professional life.

There’s also no specific state rule on employees drinking alcohol over lunch, but individual agencies prohibit employees from being impaired while at work.
