This week it was reported that former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez won her runoff and became the Democratic nominee for Texas governor Tuesday night, making her the first openly lesbian and Latina nominee to win a major party gubernatorial nomination in the state. But, what is even more interesting – Lupe Valdez owes more than $12,000 in property taxes,
The Houston Chronicle reported that Valdez, the former Dallas County sheriff, owes money on seven properties in two counties, according to the Chronicle. The paper also reported that she has several omissions on an official financial-disclosure report, which fails to list a Dallas property that she owns and gives incorrect names for two companies.
Valdez’s campaign told the Chronicle that she is paying the taxes off in installments and has “an agreement with the counties” to pay off the money owed “in the coming months.” Valdez has reportedly been paying off the taxes with incremental monthly payments ranging from $100 to $500.
Campaign spokesman Juan Dominguez also blamed incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott, who Valdez will face in November’s election, for high property taxes in the state.
“Under Greg Abbott’s failed leadership, property taxes are unpredictable and burdensome for Texans everywhere, including Sheriff Lupe Valdez,” Dominguez said, according to the Chronicle.”
Isn’t this the sheriff that refused to follow the law on illegals in her jurisdiction? And how did she amass 7 properties on a sheriff’s salary?
Well, the good old Democrats just can’t field a decent candidate for anything! Debt and delinquent taxes seem to be a way of life with the liberal democrats… And because of this, she shouldn’t be allowed to run! That simple! Time to be held accountable! If she has paid them what else hasn’t she paid!
After all, if she can’t keep her own life in order, what makes voters believe she can run a state?
