Democrat Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV) is getting scrutiny for not paying more than $14,000 in property taxes on his million-dollar home just outside of Washington D.C., the Nevada Globe reports.

Breitbart News reports:

Earlier in the year, Horsford appeared in a video for Nevada progressive advocacy group Battle Born, where he criticized the current federal tax code.

“The current federal tax code is rigged for the wealthy against the worker,” Horsford said. He also called on the wealthy to “pay their fair share,” saying, “it’s only fair that the wealthy pay their fair share.”

However, Horsford did not pay his fair share of property taxes on his home in Arlington, Virginia, according to tax records reviewed by the Nevada Globe. Despite earning a $174,000 congressional salary, Horsford failed to pay more than $14,000 in property taxes owed on his home for two years. The state of Virginia reportedly fined Horsford more than $2,500 for failing to pay his property taxes.

Horsford’s Virginia home is a five-bedroom, four-bathroom, 3,212 square foot home worth $1.8 million. Horsford was assessed several penalties, fees, and interest for the unpaid property tax between 2015 and 2016.

The Globe further notes:

Between 2015 and 2016, Horsford paid more than $2,500 in penalties, interest, and fees after he failed to pay $13,871.36 in property taxes.

In 2015, Horsford was assessed a $707.30 penalty, $463.35 in interest, and a $25 fee on his second installment of property taxes:

In 2016, Horsford was assessed a $679.42 penalty, $279.77 in interest, and a $25 fee.

As well as the $1.8 million Virginia home, Horsford has a home he and his wife purchased for $150,000. 2022 assessor records show the house was transferred to solely be owned by Horsford following his wife revealing he engaged in a 10-year extramarital affair.

Mario just another delusional voter

The simple question is this just another example for for term limits? My felling is that there’s to many inconsistencies for continuing of those voters that vote without understanding what theses career politicians are actually doing or any accountability for his voting records.

My opinion, this free loading liberal politician will never pay these taxes, or if he does, it will only be a portion of the full amount, that’s the way it works.

If I didn’t pay my property taxes, my house would be on the auction block. Taken back by the bank, etc. But what can you say he’s a Democrat, they get away with everything.

What do you expect from a Dem. It’s do as I say, not as I do. And the typical mantra of the rich don’t pay their fair share. Oh, let’s throw in affairs too. They are very hypocritical.
