Finances questioned

From Scott's first congressional bid in 2002 through the 2006 cycle, according to the FEC, his campaign paid more than $643,000 to his family, its company and the company's employees. The payments grew during the 2004 cycle when Scott, his wife and their company began falling behind on their taxes. As of 2007, they owed more than $182,000 in local, state and federal taxes, according to documents on file in Atlanta's Fulton County Courthouse.[1]


Scott was born June 27, 1946 in Aynor, South Carolina. He was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, and was a business owner and a member of the Georgia House of Representatives and of the Georgia Senate before entering the House.
