As Roy Barnes recently said, “The people of Georgia have a right to know about the person who is going to be the chief executive officer of this state.”
I couldn’t agree more, Roy.
Roy Barnes claimed federal and state income tax breaks in 2008 and 2009 for depreciation on a house he doesn’t own, his campaign acknowledged Thursday.
Cobb County property records show Barnes’ daughter and son-in-law have owned the house in Marietta since 2007 when Barnes gave it to them. Barnes owns several properties on the road.
More here. Using Barnes’ logic, then, does this mean we can’t trust him to manage the state coffers when he takes tax breaks on a home he doesn’t even own? Really, if he can’t figure out the difference between what he owns and what he doesn’t own, how can he effectively serve us from a perch on East Paces Ferry Road in Atlanta?
