Motown council women JoAnne Watson who is slamming obama for not bailing out the city and longing for those good old Carter days when the city got bacon, has paid a grand total of $68 in property taxes.
Note: Detroit's official unemployment is 18% and 75 plus % voted for obama.
From Adriennes Corner website which also shows a photo of the very nice home:
According to the AP:
A Detroit City Council member who paid $68 in property taxes this year because city records indicate her home doesn't exist, said she thought damage caused by a tornado was the reason her bill was so low.
But JoAnn Watson couldn't recall exactly when the tornado struck her well-kept brick, Tudor-style home on the city's west side, saying it might have been 1993 or 2002. She said she was unaware of a city records discrepancy that has for the past decade listed the parcel as an empty lot, despite the home occupying the plot since 1926.
Owners of comparable homes pay $2,000 to $6,500 in property taxes.
The really hilarious part of the above story is: (emphasis mine)
"I've been a target of a smear campaign," Watson told reporters gathered outside her home on Sunday. "... I pay my bills and whatever I was billed, I paid."
When asked why anyone would want to "smear" her, Watson replied: "I don't smoke, I don't drink and I don't sleep around. It's an election year. I'll let you figure it out." source
