Buttigieg blasted over being on paternity leave during supply chain crisis

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is getting blasted over being on paternity leave during a clear Supply Chain Crisis.

Politico wrote “Where has he been? Turns out that he has been on paid paternity leave since the middle of August “to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies.”

“For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated,” a Transportation Department spokesman confirmed to Politico “He has been ramping up activities since then.”

Tom Cotton wrote:

Pete Buttigieg was completely unqualified to serve as Secretary of Transportation. But Biden still picked him. Now, Pete is absent during a transportation crisis that is hurting working-class Americans.
