Woopsiedaisy! Adam Edelen just hit teabagger John Kemper (yes, Edelen’s an advertiser but you know we hate teabaggers):
2010: Kemper is currently delinquent in the amount of $5,799.63 on his 2010 property taxes for his primary residence at 4413 Ravens Crest Lane, Lexington, KY. [Tax Year 2010, Bill Number 00052026 from the Fayette Co. Clerk’s Office]
2008-09: Kemper Didn’t Pay $22K In Property Taxes On 18 Lots South Of Lexington. Kemper’s Thomas & Corbett development company did not pay 2008 or 2009 property taxes on 14 lots located on Bridlewood Lane and 4 lots on Tykes Pass in Fayette County. Those tax delinquencies, without late fees or court costs, totaled $22,921.50. [2008 Certificates of Delinquency, Fayette County Encumbrance Book 442, pp. 345-81, 465-79; 2009 Certificates of Delinquency, Fayette County Encumbrance Book 479, pp. 229-82]
2002: Kemper Ran Education Supply Company that Went Into Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Kemper is listed as president, then vice president, of Educators Delight, Inc. in state corporation records and annual reports. “Kemper owned a 24 percent stake in the company. The company sought Chapter 7 bankruptcy, claiming $3.2 million in liabilities. Its inventory and equipment were bought in 2002 by another educational supplies company.” [Corporate Records, Educator’s Delight Inc., Org. No. 0243906, Kentucky Secretary of State; In re: Educator’ s Delight, Inc., Debtor, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Case No. 02-51870, Adv. No. 03-5143, 2004 Bankr. LEXIS 125, 2/9/04; AP, 5/11/11]
Company That Purchased Kemper’s Assets Said He And Partners Misrepresented Certain Aspects Of Failed Business. “A trustee for the company, which filed for bankruptcy in 2002, sued the Kempers, saying they improperly transferred money from the company a year before the bankruptcy filing. The trustee said the transfer of assets came even as Educator’s Delight lost thousands of dollars in the three previous years and was unable to pay its debts.” “On May 15, 2003 KES [Kentucky Educational Supplies, LLC] filed the Adversary Proceeding Complaint commencing this proceeding, alleging that the Debtor and its shareholders, Nancy Kemper, John T. Kemper, and Jamie Kemper (the “Kempers”), made various misrepresentations in connection with the asset purchase. Count I of the complaint purports to assert a breach of contract and of the duty of good faith and fair dealing, and seeks to rescind the sale agreements, prejudgment interest, and consequential and delay damages and attorney’s fees. Count II seeks actual damages for fraud, and Count III seeks punitive damages for the defendants’ allegedly ‘improper, tortuous [sic] and unlawful conduct.’” The case was settled in the plaintiff’s favor on Dec. 13, 2003, and John Kemper was ordered by the court to pay $4,000. [AP, 5/11/11; In re: Educator’s Delight, Inc., Debtor, United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Case No. 02-51870, Adv. No. 03-5143, 2004 Bankr. LEXIS 125 at 2, 2/9/04]

Oops. Typical teabagger hypocrisy. Kemper lied on KET about having paid his bills, then tried to blame it on government. Turns out? Yup. Teabagger hypocrisy.
