What do Amelia McKie, trustee-elect of the Richland 2 School Board, and Marilyn Mosby, Maryland State's Attorney for Baltimore, have in common?
Each owes $45,000 or more to a government.
As has been written here for many months, McKie owes $51,000+ to the South Carolina Ethics Commission, and the Commission filed a judgment in Richland County Common Pleas Court to secure the debt. Her debt totaled $51,800 as of February 8, 2021.
FoxNews reports today that Mosby and her husband, Nick Mosby, who is president of the Baltimore City Council, owe $45,000 to the IRS. IRS filed a lien against Mosby's home in October 2020 for unpaid Federal taxes.
The South Carolina Department of Revenue is charged with collecting money owed to the State. The lien against McKie was filed on July 10, 2019, and there is no recorded activity in the court since the filing date. Is the SC DOR doing anything at all on this collection?
What could the SC DOR do? It could foreclose on the family home. It could garnish McKie's pay from Richland 2 School District. It could place a lien against McKie's automobile and other assets in her name.
Why hasn't McKie paid even a dime toward her debt?
Should a person with this amount of debt and this type of debt hold a fiduciary position involving multi-millions of dollars of assets and a $300,000,000 budget of the school district?
