I’m popping the popcorn now. Oh yeah. I’ll be watching this one closely.
The Houston Chronicle took a close look at the peculiar finances of Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), perhaps known better to Twitter users as the loudmouthed @SteveWorks4You. What the newspaper found is notable.
As both a candidate and a congressman, according to the Chronicle, Stockman has “failed to make federally required disclosures about business affiliations that stretch from Texas to the British Virgin Islands, and has provided no details about the business he claims as his sole source of income.”
He evidently reported $350,000 in income, but it’s unclear how he earned that money.
The Chronicle dug up old web pages from 2004 and 2005, when the Presidential Trust Foundation and Stockman’s name were used to solicit contributions on a website called ConservativesinAction.org. A post office box number was supplied: the same one Stockman has used over the years. According to the Chronicle, the same web pages sought donations to the same P.O. box to help produce or pre-order copies of a film promising to expose the filmmaker Michael Moore. It is not known whether the video was ever produced.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy!
