It was before the Republican primary election that 2008 Democratic Party candidate for McHenry County Coroner, David Bachmann, discovered that Sheriff Keith Nygren’s wife had a Homestead Exemption in Florida, while the Sheriff had one in Hebron.
I never did figure out whether that situation was lawful in Illinois, but it isn’t in Florida.
Today another Republican politician, GOP candidate for Governor in Maine Paul LePage, found himself in a similar situation.
That’s what the Portland Press Herald is reporting how LePage “abruptly ended a news conference” when asked about the problem.
He is leading a five-way race.
The story is even being featured on CNN.
