McDaniel, DeLay Trade More Barbs

AUGUST 29, 2006 - Posted at 7:43 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Democratic attorney general nominee Dustin McDaniel says three tax liens and a Federal Elections Commission fine levied against his Republican opponent Gunner DeLay shows the former state senator is "ethically challenged."

McDaniel cited the liens and the fines after DeLay accused the state representative from Jonesboro of being inconsistent on illegal immigration issues.

McDaniel noted that the Internal Revenue Service in 2000 and 2001 filed two liens against DeLay after he owed them more than $44,000 in income taxes for 1996, 1998 and 1999.  McDaniel also cited a $1,562 lien filed against DeLay by the state in 1999.

McDaniel also said fines levied against DeLay by the FEC over the filing of a late campaign report showed DeLay's disregard for the law.

DeLay accused McDaniel of resorting to the "worst kind of sleazy political maneuver" and questioned McDaniel's compliance with state ethics laws on his campaign finance reports.

DeLay says he has paid his state and local taxes and that the IRS liens were the result of miscommunication he had with the federal government on how much he owed.
