Will McCaskill Now “Just Sell The Damn Condo?”

May 21st, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

While Claire tries to burnish her moderate, middle class, “I’m one of you” credentials to save her Senate seat, word over the weekend is that the good senator was late paying the taxes on her Washington condo:

Only seven months after critical news stories about unpaid taxes on a private airplane, U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was late paying property taxes on her Washington, D.C., condominium.

Records show that the Missouri Democrat missed the fall 2011 deadline by about three weeks. McCaskill paid $197 in penalties and interest on top of the $1,514 in taxes owed for half the year. Read more…

In the early 1990s, delinquent taxes at a McCaskill-owned property at the Lake of the Ozarks were such a problem that the county published a notice that it would be auctioning off the property to pay taxes.  McCaskill blamed her brother (KC Star, Aug 14, 2004).

On another campaign note. With the president’s increasing unpopularity in Missouri, we know that Claire will not have Obama within three states of Missouri during this election cycle. To counter this and to shore up the Black vote for the fall, the campaign has hired an African American, STL County patronage employee, Chalana Oliver.
