Republican Congressman and his “housemate/man” swindle DC out of property taxes

It’s difficult to sort out all the parts of this story; sort of combines the usual Republican behavior: greed, closet homosexuality, lawbreaking, voter fraud, and lying.

 Congressman Patrick T. McHenry (R-NC), right, purchased a residence in Washington, DC’s Capital Hill neighborhood with another man, PageOneQ has learned. While he owned the home, McHenry and co-owner Scott G. Stewart claimed eligibility for the District of Columbia’s Homestead Tax Deduction, a tax reduction program to encourage homeownership and residence in DC. At the same time McHenry was registered to vote, and did so, in Gaston County, North Carolina.

Oh, and massive hypocrisy. Check out his website.
