Calley accuses Schuette of working 104 days in 7 years

The war of words is heating up in the GOP gubernatorial primary as Brian Calley has fired new charges at his opponent Bill Schuette.

Calley is 20 points behind him in the polls, but he claims Schuette is spending more time on the campaign trail than doing his job as attorney general.

Calley paid $2,500 to obtain the official office schedule of Schuette -- and now alleges there are more empty pages over the last 7 years on that calender, and only 104 days when Schuette allegedly actually worked 8 hours or more. Calley contends Schuette worked more on his political agenda than for the people.

"I don't doubt that there's a separate political schedule and I expect that that's where most of his activities lie," Calley said. "I think that this is unprecedented. I can't imagine. I can't imagine another public official having a work schedule this blank."

But a Schuette campaign operative who worked in the AG's office says otherwise.

"He a full-time working attorney general and he is working on the people's business," said Stu Sandler, who says he's worked more for the people than on his political career, adding that there are crisis that come up that don't make the calendar.

In a counterattack, Sandler says that Calley attended Harvard at a cost to the taxpayer.

"We know that he skipped a third of his job for three years to go to Harvard on the taxpayer dime," he said.

Calley said most of the work was done remotely. He promises to release his official schedule before the election.
