Tea Party candidate for Ohio lieutenant governor has tax troubles, too
Report follows ones that drove Eric Kearney off the Democratic ticket
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT JO INGLES


Reporter
Jo Ingles
 
In The Region:

It appears Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald isn’t the only one whose running mate has unpaid tax issues. A look at government records shows the woman who plans to run with the Tea Party candidate in a Republican primary against Gov. Kasich also has tax problems. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

The past president of the Ohio Black Republicans Association, Brenda Mack, has been named in a news release as the lieutentant governor candidate to run with Cincinnati area Tea Party activist Ted Stevenot.

But she’s also been named in government documents as owing nearly $60,000 in back taxes and penalties. Mack also filed for bankruptcy in 2008.

Those documents show she owed about $104,000 to creditors, including about $6,000 in unpaid wages to seven employees of a Youngstown cleaning company she owned from 1997 to 2007.

Just last month, Democratic state Sen. Eric Kearney quit gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald’s ticket because of the backlash from revelations that Kearney, his wife and his newspaper company owed nearly a million dollars in unpaid state and federal taxes and penalties.

 

Listener Comments:

This is a hilarious trend. Someone needs to teach people how to properly vet candidates.
