Many politicians are attorneys, but former 12th district GOP candidate Wright McLoed is finding it is difficult to be both at the same time. He represents an Augusta Homeowners Association whose board has instructed him to sue homeowners over a playhouse in their backyard that their daughter wanted in a beautiful (to her) shade of pink.
The result is typical for HOA disputes. Common sense is thrown out the window via a power hungry board and a homeowner who believes that covenants only apply to the things in other people’s property. Instead of finding a solution (or attempting a waiver given the house doesn’t appear to be visible from the street), they’re going to court.
And in no-win situations like this that end up in litigation, the only winners are the lawyers. Unless they’re also politicians. Because this situation doesn’t make anyone look good.
And if you’re wondering why this is relevent given that his title is “former candidate”, the above link was posted this morning from “former candidate” Rick Allen’s facebook page.
