Who works less? McCollum, Sink or Crist.....



While 1 million Floridians look for work, Gov. Charlie Crist and the two Cabinet members vying to succeed him have the kind of work calendars most Floridians can only dream about.

The Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau reviewed the official schedules for Attorney General Bill McCollum and Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink dating back to Jan. 1, 2007 and found that all three have scheduled significant amounts of time off -- be it through vacation, personal days, half days or days where the calendar reads "nothing scheduled."

The elected officials say their calendars don't tell the full story, and that they are always working even when the schedule doesn't show it.

Read about the Governor's work habits and those of CFO Sink and AG Bill McCollum.
