Lifting the Veil of Secrecy on Jasper County Public Records

 

The Jasper County Magistrate’s name appears often in the Lien and Judgment records of the Clerk’s Office……. $62,766.62 in total claims of record as of January 27, 2010.

Information about judgment and tax liens being on record against Chief Magistrate Judge Kenneth Jackson has come to the attention of The Taxpayers’ Watchdog Group, Inc.   Sources have told TWG that this information has not appeared in local credit sheets of Court Records, information routinely sent to lenders and businesses.   Federal and State Tax Liens have been on record since January of 2002 (IRS) and January 2008 (GA Dept Revenue), well before the last elections for Magistrate.   

.

It is remarkable that this information has been a “secret” from the public so long and yet old records about a recent candidate in the Special Election for District 3 Commissioner surfaced publicly right before the run-off.   This whole situation defies reasoning.   Is it ethical or even legal for this type thing to occur?  

 

Usually, garnishments and property levy occurs after judgment.   At this time, it is not confirmed that collection efforts have been enforced in these liens.

 

It is no secret that the Jasper County Clerk of Courts is a very good friend and advocate for the incumbent Magistrate.   The Clerk has been actively involved in political campaigns in recent years.  His lack of impartiality should be cause for concern for taxpayers.   What else lies behind the “Veil of Secrecy”?
