icon_dirt.gifBroun’s transgressions come to light, by Blake Aued:

U.S. Rep. Paul Broun is trying to return to Congress for a second term, but his past might come back to haunt him.

The Athens Republican declared bankruptcy, didn’t pay his taxes and fought with an ex-wife over alimony payments while living in Americus in the late 1970s and early 1980s, according to records unearthed by GOP opponent Barry Fleming’s campaign.

In his four previous runs for federal office, rumors circulated, but politicians and journalists considered him a fringe candidate and didn’t delve too deep into his past. Sumter County and federal court documents offer detailed information about his transgressions.

For his part, Broun isn’t denying anything, but is claiming (what else?) he has “accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and savior”.

Keep it up boys, and we’ll have a Democratic Congressman in the 10th yet.
