New documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act highlight the hypocrisy of Rep. Rick Outman (R-Six Lakes). Outman has repeatedly launched politically-motivated attacks against his opponent, former Rep. Mike Huckleberry, but records show Outman hasn't been straight with voters in Montcalm County about his own history of tax delinquency, and faced over $21,000 in unpaid taxes.

These new documents show a history of tax liens and debt, including: failure to pay property taxes in 2006, resulting in the foreclosure of his home; $2,492 in unpaid taxes to the State of Michigan; and a federal tax lien of $16,000 in 2009. Outman was also sued in court by L&D Carey & Sons Trucking for $5,873 for non-payment in October 2008. Outman only recently paid his property taxes for his Montcalm County home on October 4, 2012.

Transcript:

Mike Huckleberry says Michigan should balance the state budget, but he can't even balance his own budget. Huckleberry racked up $30,000 in personal debts he can't pay. He's been sued for not paying his bills. Truth is, Mike Huckleberry has a long history with over-spending. He voted to support over $500 million in wasteful spending from Jennifer Granholm. And he supported the trillion dollar stimulus bill -- the one that failed to create any jobs and soak us deeper in debt. Mike Huckleberry's big spending ideas are too dangerous for our future.

Rick Outman helped balance the state budget on-time and without gimmicks for the first time in a decade. He did it the same way he balances his family's checkbook -- protecting the things that matter most and making sure to save for the future. Rick Outman's plan will keep taxes low and stop Michigan from over-spending. Rick Outman. A working man working for us. Paid for by the House Republican campaign committee with regulated funds. Authorized by Rick Outman for State Representative.
