District 62 (Fulton & Douglas counties)

 

Valerie Vie

Valerie Vie

Valerie Vie, like her opponent in House District 62, has a significant federal tax debt. The IRS last year filed a $11,554 lien against her for unpaid taxes. Another IRS lien for $4,175 has remained on the books since 2009. Georgia’s Constitution bars tax delinquents from holding state office unless the debt is contested or subject to a payment plan.

Vie also has no personal financial disclosure on file with the state ethics commission. In a brief telephone conversation, Vie said she was unsure why and referred us to her campaign manager, whose told us nothing because his voicemail box was full and his website’s email was not functioning.

Campaign-to-campaign donations

Candidates may give campaign funds to other candidates, a practice that some say provides a legal means to circumvent contribution limits. A 2003 bill to ban such transfers altogether passed in the Senate but died in the House. Vie’s campaign has made no such donations.
