CINCINNATI -- The man who was recently tapped at Ed Fitzgerald’s running mate in the race for Ohio’s next governor reportedly owes nearly $1 million in taxes.
State Sent. Eric Kearney is from Cincinnati and is transitioning to the ticket for lieutenant governor.
Fitzgerald picked Kearney as his running mate last week for the 2014 ticket.
The Dayton Daily News reports that Kearney and his wife owe back taxes on numerous items.
The couple owns a publishing business and said much of the money they owe is due to the challenges of print media and the change over of one business to a corporation.
Reports state Kearney and his wife owe $197,344 related to their publishing company, and another $731,805 that is associated with the KGL Media Group in state and federal liens.
The couple is reportedly on a payment plan of $1,000 per month.
