TABOR author Douglas Bruce could wind up in prison

Douglas Bruce was convicted in absentia of five municipal citations in Pennsylvania on Thursday, opening himself up to a new criminal charge and possibly a prison sentence.

Bruce, a Colorado felon, former state representative and author of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, owns dozens of blighted properties around the country. One of them sits in Pittston, a small city in northeastern Pennsylvania.

That Pittston property — an old bar — is so decrepit that Bruce was cited by the city’s code enforcement for a failure to demolish the Main Street building. In April, The Gazette reported that Bruce faced six municipal citations for a failure to demolish the building. Since then, additional citations have been filed against him.

Bruce has denied wrongdoing while lobbing insults at Pittston officials and indicating he had no intention of attending his court hearing, further angering city officials. True to his word, the anti-tax advocate remained in Colorado instead of heading to Pennsylvania for the hearing.

1. There's no need he should have to put up with the town's bullshit.

Why, right here on D.U., I've seen videos of this group, they call themselves, I think its Slobbering Citizens. Anyways, they could help this guy with his problem. If anyone reading the thread, they might put them in touch with each other.


No, ya don't have to thank me. I'm just doing whats right and helping the fella out.

2. TABOR was passed in 92, six years after I moved to CO

I couldn't believe people would vote for somehing put forth by a con man like Doug Bruce, but they did and it's come back to haunt us.
He can and should rot in jail, damn slumlord.
