GOP candidate West ‘rectifying’ $8,373 in court judgmentsby George Bennett | March 18th, 2010
West said he paid off American Express more than a year ago after it won the 2006 judgment. West said he is “more than half way” done paying off Midland Funding LLC, which won the 2009 judgment.
“I’m like any other American out there who’s doing the best for his family. You get behind on some things but you’re responsible for rectifying the situation, which is what I’ve done,” West said this morning.
West is challenging U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton, in a race the national GOP touts as one of its top takeover priorities this year.
In a financial disclosure statement West filed last year with the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives, the retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel listed three sources of income: a $47,520 military pension, a $90,000 salary from defense contractor Calibre Inc. and his wife’s $81,000 job as a financial adviser with Raymond James.
West’s homeowner association in Plantation also filed a $612 lien against him last year for unpaid maintenance assessments. West said he’s “up to date” with his HOA, although no release of the lien shows up in Broward County records
