It seems that some Tennessee elected officials have contracted Timothy Geithner Syndrome
According to a Tennessean report this week, several prominent Middle Tennessee political figures either are or were delinquent in remitting their property taxes. Among them, it is worth noting, are State Representative Brenda Gilmore (D-Nashville) and State Senator Thelma Harper (D-Nashville). The legislative voting record of these two ladies certainly lends credence to the idea that they have no problem supporting raising taxes, they just aren't much on paying them. It might be a fair question to ask whether or not Harper or Gilmore supported former Governor Phil Bredesen's most asinine proposal during his time of office-that of a State property tax which thankfully went nowhere.
