U.S. Senate candidate Jimmie Lee Deakin, Jr. has more to worry about than siphoning enough votes from conservative U.S. Senate candidate J. D. Hayworth to return John McCain to the halls of power he so covets.
It seems Jimmie Lee is facing foreclosure, with his home just noticed — July 29 — for a trustee sale.*
During the debates, Deakin made much of the issue of congressional overspending. But how does he intend to effectively rein in government spending when he’s unable to control his own? This news puts a definite damper on Deakin’s credibility.
Deakin claims he is a successful businessman, continually reminding audiences of his business acumen in making payroll — even stating that he’s had to make tough decisions that included laying off his own family members when the need arose. He has used the words “I’m squeaky clean,” as he compared himself to others.
Now with the need to replace his current living arrangements, his campaign beneficiary John McCain should be able to provide some relief. After all, McCain has so many homes, he was unable to give an accurate accounting when asked during his failed 2008 presidential campaign. Jimmie and Adonia should be able to count on the generosity of friends.
Blanche DuBois was always able to rely on “the kindness of strangers.”
