Report: Liens filed against Arkansas candidate

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A published reports says the state has filed 12 liens for outstanding taxes totaling nearly $22,000 against a congressional candidate or his law firm.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/ImkFXl) reported in Sunday's editions that none of the liens against Hot Springs attorney Q. Byrum Hurst have been released or cleared. The newspaper reports that Hurst's oldest and largest debt is a $10,050 lien from August 2005 for failure to pay 2002 income taxes.

According to a statement released by his campaign, questions about Hurst's tax debt are being thoroughly investigated and will be resolved as soon as the facts are clear.

Court records show the Department of Finance and Administration also has three liens totaling $4,583 against Hurst's earlier law firm for not paying withholding tax.
