Justice’s complicated finances have never faced the scrutiny that comes with a U.S. Senate race, and he knows it. Justice tried to refuse a federal judge's request to provide information on his finances, citing his run for U.S. Senate as a central reason for not disclosing it.
"Judge finds no merit in Justice’s request to shield financial disclosures because of U.S. Senate run"
"The schedules show him at photo ops or simply unaccounted for."

“And I do think there are health-related issues with Justice. He does not get them all, he does not get around well. He has serious, pretty serious issues with pain in his legs that he deals with all the time. I think it's a constant concern for him.”
Justice has faced an ongoing scandal over his work schedule. The Associated Press reported Justice was “largely absent in job,” while the Charleston Gazette-Mail wrote that “work hasn’t always been top of mind for the two-term governor,” and he continues “refusing to release his official schedule and calendar.”
Jim Justice is facing a barrage of scandals over failure to meet his “financial and work safety obligations,” delinquent property tax payments — which are “critical” in funding police, infrastructure, libraries, parks, public safety and schools across West Virginia, and public safety violations and failure to pay health care premiums to retired mine workers.
