Georgia woman loses home over $94.85 in unpaid taxes — due to city’s clerical error

Published

on

A Georgia woman is facing the loss of her home over less than $100 in unpaid taxes – and she says city officials have admitted they might be to blame.

Xui Lui said she never even knew she had an overdue tax bill on her two-bedroom condominium in Norcross, which she bought with cash in 2011.

WSB-TV reported that county records show Lui has paid county and city taxes each year except the first, when certified letters warning of an outstanding balance of $94.85 were returned to the city.

A clerical error resulted in an incomplete address on those letters, so Lui never received them.

Lui received a notice last week informing her that the condo where she lives with her 4-year-old daughter had been sold at auction, and she has until Nov. 25 to move out.

“Someone can rob your house, rob your property? This is not American style, right?” she said.

Lui said city officials have admitted the auction was likely the result of their mistake, and they told the TV station they would try to fix the situation.

“We are going back and doing our due diligence,” said City Manager Rudolph Smith. “(The city contractor who handled the sale) will try to work something out.”

But the property has been legally sold to another buyer, so officials aren’t sure what they can do.

Officials said they were unaware of any problems until Lui contacted them last week.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
