Another day, another scandal involving former NERD-paid, Skunk Works mastermind Richard Baird

So, this broke last night.

LANSING — A top aide to Gov. Rick Snyder says he’ll immediately pay local property taxes that he says were “inadvertently” exempted on his Lansing-area house at the same time he took a similar exemption on a long-time home in the Chicago area.

Not just that, but he also appears to be registered to vote in both Illinois. It's some of that voter fraud the Republicans have been warning us about for years.

He also claims
he filled out his property tax exemption at closing when he bought the house... I have purchased several homes, and not once have I seen a homestead exemption form at closing.

Inadvertent my ass. He's just another one of Snyder's lying henchmen.

From my recent experiences:
They give you the form at the closing, but you have to directly take it to the appropriate office. The same was true for the waiving of the homestead exemption for the previous residence.

I can't speak to Mr. Baird's situation, but that is what I got from three different title companies (in Michigan) in three separate transactions over the past three years.

Great Lakes, Great Times.

It has changed
then... it's been 15 years since I purchased my last home.

Baird is a clown, and Snyder has known that this guy was trouble for some time.  Snyder calls this man a "transformation manager."  This is nothing more than a euphemism for a henchman and fixer, which is exactly why he didn't cut him off after the first scandal.  Snyder is making this easier for Mark almost every day, now.
