Brian Rothenberg has an update on The Legend of Joy Padgett: Bankruptcy Court.
Remember the curious case of Joy Padgett’s Bankruptcy Abuse from last Fall. Or for those of you in eastern and central Ohio, the memorable Joy Padgett for Congress commercial where she is standing like Julie Andrews — sound-of-music like — on the family farm.
Some of you may have known that at the time she pirouetted on her TV farm, she didn’t even own the family farm having transferred ownership as part of her bankruptcy case. And during the campaign that questionable transfer became embroiled in allegations that it was fraudulent by the people she owed – her creditors.
Well, sure enough, Joy is running from creditors in ‘them there hills.’ After the music from November’s election, with visions of DC fading before her eyes, the trustee overseeing Joy Padgett’s bankruptcy proceedings filed an objection to Padgett’s proposed re-payment plan. The objection was based on several problems, including a need for “further documentation and explanation as to why property is not a fraudulent transfer.”
Of course, his title his hilarious: “THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE SOUNDS OF JOYOUS PADGETTRY”
