From the Illinois Republican Party -
CHICAGO - In the wake of the Daily Herald report that 8th District Congressional candidate Tammy Duckworth improperly claimed two homeowner exemptions at once over a period of several years, the Illinois Republican Party urged Duckworth to come clean to the voters and answer the following unanswered questions:
1) According to the Daily Herald, Tammy Duckworth was alerted in 2010 that she was not eligible to receive a second homestead tax exemption. Why did she wait until the Daily Herald contacted her two weeks ago to correct the supposed error?
2) Does Tammy Duckworth think it's hypocritical that she advocates raising taxes on 8th District residents when she herself wasn't paying the taxes she owed?
3) At a time when more than 8% of homes in Illinois are facing foreclosure, will Tammy Duckworth apologize to struggling 8th District families for gaming the system?
