Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder has released the timesheets of his former Chief of Staff Eric Feltner --- and said the documents conclude that Feltner was not using state resources during the alleged misconduct.
Kinder's communications director Gary McElyea issued this statement:
"This morning, following the immediate resignation of Eric Feltner our office began a prompt review of Mr. Feltner’s time cards and request for leave forms.
“Office records indicate that Mr. Feltner was on compensatory leave for both days in question listed in court documents. May 25, 2007, Mr. Feltner took compensatory leave from 3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. On July 5, 2007, Mr. Feltner took an entire work day of compensatory time.
“From our internal administrative review, these documents conclude that Mr. Feltner was not using state resources or facilities during the alleged misconduct.
“The Lt. Governor was shocked to hear of these charges but has responded promptly to the inexcusable appearance of impropriety by this staff member."
