It’s not news that Mark Lowery, the twice bankrupt repeat offender of financial disclosure requirements, sucks at money stuff. But the depths of suck have perhaps not been sufficiently explored and documented.
The R by Lowery’s name likely renders these glaring red flags moot, as Arkansas voters might rather choke in a festering red tide of ineptitude than ride a blue wave of competence and service. Failing to pay income taxes and racking up multiple ethics violations for not filing campaign financials is maybe no big deal to some, even for a person wanting to be the CFO of the state. Guess we will see. Amazingly, Democrat and financially literate candidate Pam Whitaker faces a tough race.
The On AR Watch blog digs deeper on Lowery’s checkered financial past today, with amusing graphics and interesting questions about money being here, then gone, like magic.
Mark Lowery is either a very good grifter or very bad at money… or both.
Should someone with a fraught financial past be our next #arpx State Treasurer?
