The Right Stuff

A politics blog by Tom Jackson

The Right Stuff is not often grateful for the many alerts delivered to its email inbox by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but on those rare occasions when gratitude is appropriate, it likes to acknowledge its indebtedness.

Wednesday afternoon, the DCCC commended TRS’s attention to the Pinellas County living arrangements of Republican David Jolly, running to fill the final nine months of his old boss’ congressional term.

According to a blog post in the Tampa Bay Times, Jolly claims a homestead exemption in an Intracoastal Waterway condominium complex that is otherwise owned by investors and second-home vacationers. The post also notes that Democrat Alex Sink rents space in Feather Sound.

So, bottom line: Jolly owns; Sink rents.

The Right Stuff is glad the Times pointed that out, and pleased the DCCC made sure it noticed.
