No one want's to be disgraced in the national news, but that's just what Bob Ney did to Ohio's 18th Congressional district. If Joy Padgett somehow manages to win the seat I can guarantee that It'll happen again.
WASHINGTON — A federal bankruptcy trustee is investigating whether a congressional candidate gave property to her family last year to keep it from her creditors.
Court files show that state Sen. Joy Padgett transferred her one-third share of her family farm less than a month before she and her husband sought bankruptcy protection for their office-supply company.
"I am looking into it within the office," John Kennedy, lawyer for U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee Frank Pees, said yesterday.
