Grimes Fails To Report Her Own Businesses To Herself

According to Alison Lundergan Grimes, two of her businesses were not in good standing with her elected office. The Lexington Herald-Leader  reported that Alison Lundergan Grimes is the organizer of two businesses, Glenncase and GCL Properties, with part ownership in Glenncase, that failed to file their annual reports by July 1st as required by the Secretary of State’s office.

Two businesses associated with Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes failed to meet the July 1 annual reporting deadline required by her state office.

Grimes organized both businesses and has an ownership interest in one of them, but her father, former state Democratic Party Chairman Jerry Lundergan, took the blame Tuesday for missing the filing deadline.

Lundergan is listed as the sole officer for both businesses – Glenncase and GCL Properties – in filings with the secretary of state’s office. Glenncase, in which Grimes has an ownership interest, involves 11-plus acres on New Circle Road. GCL Properties owns the Carriage House on Limestone Street.

Yesterday, Grimes’ office sent a press release notifying the 20% of businesses that missed the July 1st filing deadline to pay a fine and submit their annual reports in order to reclaim good standing with the Secretary of State’s office.
