State Custodian Suspended for On the Clock Political Posts Now Back At Work


A custodian in the state treasurer’s office has served a 20-day suspension without pay for improper use of his state computer.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the investigation of Kurt Wohler began over a Facebook post.

 

Wohler shared a photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama with a caption that read: “Share if you agree with the First Lady; it’s time to give everyone a chance at the American Dream.”

 

State officials say that post amounts to conducting political activity on state time.

 

The investigation also revealed that Wohler’s computer had been used to access adult Internet sites.

 

He is back on the job now, but no longer has Internet access on his state computer.
