TitleMax Update: $296,000
TitleMax of Georgia, one of the state’s largest car title pawn companies, filed five more campaign disclosures after our report last week. With those filings, TitleMax has now disclosed — for the first time — $296,000 in political contributions since July 1, 2006. There were 195 donations in that period; in each case, failure to disclose the payment is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000.
By the way, last week’s article should have noted that TitleMax filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last month. The Southern District of Georgia in Savannah is handling the case.
