Florida Democrat’s Mansion Migraine

On Wednesday the Tampa Bay Times reported that Eric Lynn, Democratic candidate for Florida’s 13th congressional district and former Obama advisor, had received over $1,200 in tax deductions for the two houses he owns in Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Mary Mulhern, a fellow Democrat who is planning to run for the seat, didn’t hold back on her criticism of Lynn:

“I can’t relate to having three homes in three different states. Like most families, my husband and I have to work hard all year to pay the mortgage and taxes on one home,”

Darden Rice, A Democrat who also considered a run for the seat admitted the obvious:

“It is a serious issue for him to overcome,” Rice said.

After the week he’s had, Lynn’s headache has most certainly turned into a major migraine.
