Seems like just yesterday that the main
leg breakerpolitical consultant for mayoral candidate Michael “Boy Wonder” Berry was accusing Orlando Sanchez for being soft on tax scofflaws. Turns out that Berry has issues of his own:
Monday, Berry’s campaign consultant blasted Sanchez for scheduling a fund-raiser at the home of people who owed back property taxes.
As it turns out, one of Berry’s own steering committee members, lawyer Mark Dulworth, had the same problem — overdue taxes of $2,770 on a house he bought last year in West University Place.
Berry spokesman Chris Begala said Dulworth’s mortgage company was supposed to have escrowed money to pay the tax bill that became due Jan. 31.
After learning that had not happened, Dulworth paid his back taxes on Tuesday, Begala said.
Begala said that Dulworth has contributed $100 to the Berry campaign in addition to being a steering committee member.
This is all just incredibly petty and tawdry, and I’m enjoying every minute of it. Keep it coming, fellas, I need something to tide me over until I get to see Matrix Reloaded.
