Local group protests Senator Boseman paying taxes

Pay your taxes. That's what a group of protestors outside the New Hanover County government building were asking of state Senator Julia Boseman today. Nearly $5,000 in taxes were owed on a home Boseman owned with her former domestic partner. The taxes and interest were paid last week on the home in New Hanover County -- more than five months after they were due. Boseman signed over the deed in April to her former domestic partner Melissa Jarrell. Jarrell was unaware that the deed was signed over. But according to North Carolina law, it is legal for an owner to sign over property without the knowledge of the other party. Today, Americans for Prosperity protested Boseman's delinquent tax payment. The group says it is hypocritical of Boseman, as a law-maker to not abide by laws she makes. Boseman says she hasn't lived in the house for two years, and legally gave over the property. "You know I deeded the property over to her recently. We had reached an impasse and I wanted to give her more flexibility in how she wanted to dispose of the property. You know I gave up all of my equity in the property to give her this flexibility," said Boseman. Boseman said all of this came to light because of the recent custody battle for her son, with her former partner, Melissa Jarrell. Americans for Prosperity say Boseman has set a bad example by not paying the taxes on time. Even though the taxes were paid on Friday, they went on with today's protest to make the public aware of her failure to pay on time.

BOSEMAN IS NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE. GET REAL, FOCUS ON MORE IMPORTANT ISSUES THAN A 5 MONTH LATE TAX BILL! NO ONE IS PERFECT, LEST YOU CAST THE FIRST STONES. SOME PERSONS JUST ALWAYS WANT TO KICK SOMEONE WHEN THEY'RE DOWN. TIMES ARE TOUGH FOR EVERYONE! EVEN PUBLIC FIGURES.SHE DID MAKE IT RIGHT. SPEND THAT ENERGY HELPING OTHERS IN NEED!!!!
Julia Boseman is only human. She has done a great job for us in Raleigh. Things like this happen when a relationship breaks up. She put her child first!!! Thanks Julia for a great job.
Wow, interesting. Had that been one of us regular folk, we would be threaten to have our wages garnished, or property foreclosed on. Why did it take 5 years? Strange how this hypocrisy go on in these county offices with certain people. They try to crucify the little people, while upholding the real crooks
It said 5 months, not five years!!! Y'all need to find a life and be haters on something real.
Get real, peeps. She wasn't even living there, and she gave the home up. Find something real to attack her on, not this junk.
It's people like this that cause our local taxes to increase (because we have to make up the difference). I can't believe it's one of our own government officials....or can I?! I think Raleigh needs to step in and kick her butt out of politics (possibly investigate), much like they've done some other corrupt officials (Wright and Ron Hewitt). Hey Ms Bosemen....see you at the Grand Jury. I hope I recieve a letter in the mail to serve on the jury.
BAM! Thank you people for what you did. Now the rest of us will go on hammering her on the Wilmington Star News forums.
