This really could just turn out to be a paper work error. However, since Congressman Vern as been involved in too many shady business activities to remember (including tax issues) - it's worth a second look.
More after the jump...
You may remember this district from 2006 - it was the subject of a went-nowhere federal lawsuit by Christine Jennings (his opponent in '06 and will be again this November) alleging touch screen voting machine issues and rampant fraud/undervoting.
This is a solidly leaning GOP district. But Christine Jennings is a good candidate who would have won if not for GOP hi-jinks at the polls. It's a bad year for Vern and his party. But don't worry for Vern, in Jan '09 he can get back to doing what he does best - lying, cheating and stealing.
*Vern is listed as one of 5 wealthiest members of the U.S. House.
*On Vern's wikipedia page, someone has randomly inserted "Vern Buchanan is still a douchebag" below the notes/references. I love that word.
