The incumbent Clerk, a career politician, has begun a personal smear campaign against me. He is alleging that a tax lien against my husband (the attorney who sued Brown for disability discrimination and FMLA violation), is the same as evading paying taxes. It is not. I have always paid my taxes; however, in the recession my husband was unable to make a large tax payment on his income and as a result has a tax lien where we make monthly payments.
This is NOT the same as evading paying personal property taxes, especially when it’s his job to collect them. As you have seen by the YouTube videos, that is what the incumbent did. The violation of not registering his vehicle in Kentucky within 15 days, is a Class A misdemeanor. He bought the vehicle in March and didn’t register it until January.
Owing money is not a crime. I have always paid my taxes and will continue to do so. He has now taken it upon himself to mail to many citizens a copy of the tax lien along with a decision by the court of appeals finding that the buyer of our mortgage did not have to prove its ownership.
I have NEVER broken the law with the exception of a speeding ticket when I was 16 years of age. Regardless of the rumors he spreads, the YouTube videos show that he committed the crime and that he lied on a loan application for that same vehicle. I trust the citizens of Boone County to see these rumors for what they are.
