It turns out Democrat Pennsylvania US Senate candidate John Fetterman failed to disclose owning EIGHT properties.
Fetterman is running against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in the 2022 US Senate race in Pennsylvania.
Democrat Fetterman has been attacking Dr. Oz for owning 10 homes.
It turns out Fetterman owns eight properties in Braddock, PA worth approximately $108,000.
Fetterman’s camp hit back at the Daily Mail for their investigation into his properties.
“These properties don’t produce any income and are not investment properties, so John did not need to disclose them,” Fetterman spokesperson Nicholas Gavio told the Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail reported:
A watchdog group is filing a complaint asking the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate why Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman did not disclose eight real estate assets on his most recent personal financial disclosure.
The total value of the properties he left off his disclosure form was $108,800. All eight of the properties were in Braddock, Pa.- Fetterman’s hometown where he served as mayor. His name is listed as owner on all of them on the Allegheny County website. Many of the properties appeared to be empty lots worth between $10,000 and $20,000 that are surrounding Fetterman’s home. One was a building structure worth over $40,000.
Fetterman did not list a single real estate asset on his most recent July 29 disclosure, but his team says he did not have to because they did not produce income and weren’t classified as investments.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) wrote a letter, obtained by DailyMail.com, to Ethics Committee Chairman Sen. Chris Coons, D-De., and Vice Chairman James Lankford, R-Okla., asking them to ‘immediately investigate’ whether Fetterman violated the law by withholding the assets from his disclosure form.
Federal law and Senate ethics rules require Senate candidates to file a financial disclosure statement that provides a ‘full and complete’ statement of their assets, debts, and income, as well as any position held. Candidates are required to report any property with a ‘fair market value’ of $1,000 or more.
According to FACT, at least seven of the eight properties Fetterman did not disclose were valued over $1,000- though the precise fair market value is not known, their assessed values are $41,500, $22,100, $14,100, $10,500, $9,600, $9,300, $1,000 and $700.
John Fetterman has been dodging Dr. Oz’s requests to debate since his massive stroke in May.
John Fetterman can barely talk after his stroke.
Dr. Oz ripped John Fetterman Monday night during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show.
Oz said Fetterman owes back taxes and has liens on his properties.
