LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) - Nebraska State Auditor Charlie Janssen now faces a big hurdle in his re-election bid.
The Omaha World-Herald is reporting that it followed Janssen for three months and found a pattern of late morning arrivals at his state capitol office, long lunches involving beer drinking, and not showing up back at his office in the afternoon.
In the past month, Janssen was seen at a popular Lincoln sports bar near the State Capitol ten times over a 20 working day period.
Janssen told the paper his workday begins at 5 a.m. at his Fremont home to get ahead of his work at the Auditor's office so his work day ends early.
Janssen is being challenged by Democrat and political newcomer Jane Skinner of Omaha in November.
