Ralph Bradbury Releases More Information in Fight With IRS

Carlton Saffa, chairman of a super PAC set up last month for the purpose of defeating Pryor should he seek re-election in 2014, has accused Pryor of using “his powerful position to shield his wealthy mother-in-law from $2 million in federal taxes owed by a company she owned.”

But Pryor’s spokesman Michael Teague maintains that Pryor has not intervened on the Harveys’ behalf.

“It begs the question why we’re even mentioned in these stories,” Teague said. “Where’s the evidence?”

He said Pryor wasn’t mentioned in the lawsuit.

He said the IRS was going after Ralph Bradbury because of the IRS’ statute, which calls for it to go after the “responsible person” of a company.

“I don’t know how more clear I can be: We’ve had no dealings with the IRS, the Harveys or anyone else involved in this, including the Bradburys,” Teague said.
