As most anyone who has owned a home and might have considered owning another knows; you don’t get to double dip. Only ONE free pass per household. The Lansing State Journal reports:
“Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, and her husband Fayez claimed a 100 percent personal residence exemption for both the Detroit home they live in and a rental property they own in Dearborn, city assessment records from both municipalities show.”
You don’t say?
Gosh lawbreaking lawmakers, what will they think of next?
But no problem. Its all good. It wasn’t intentional. Certainly a multi-termed state representative, who is running to advance her career as a state senator couldn’t possibly be aware that she was breaking the law. WAY too busy right? Certainly there is a good reason. The story continues:
“This was an honest mistake; I’m a little embarrassed I didn’t catch it”
See? No problem.
Its not like she has anything to worry about. Ya know, like if she was a judge or something like that.
