Detroit Coucilwoman Wants Obama Quid Pro Quo Bailout For Votes
I found this interesting...
Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson wants Barack Obama to bail the city out of it's financial crisis because the district that the city resides in voted 75% in favor of Obama and played a role in his reelection bid. Experts predict the city will be bankrupt by years end without help.
Yet it seems that JoAnn Watson is a part of the problem instead of a part of the soultion. In 2009 it came to the attention of the media that she doesn't pay fair property taxes. City records showed that her land was an empty lot and has showed it that way for a decade. In 2009 she only paid $68 in property taxes while homes of similar value pay between $2000 and $6500 in property taxes.
I just don't understand how people like this get re-elected to office. On one hand she expects a government handout to fix the problems of a city that she has been a councilwoman for for years (clearly she and her co-councilpersons are doing a "wonderful" job) and on the other hand she contributes to the problem by paying a fraction of her property taxes while claiming ignorance that he property tax should have been more than $68.

and exactly how many electoral votes did Michigan give towards Obama for re-election? Sorry lady but though the votes were substantially in favor of Obama the state as a whole didn't really do too much in tipping the scale towards Obama getting elected
