yeah, but an old broom knows the corners!!!

who cares what Taylor owns..hell he could own half of WNC for all we know. He has made his money and now has the leisure time to spend it. He could have helped folks when he was in office, but he picked and choose his causes--which never helped me any. Seems he was too busy playing in Russia to help his community.

Is it possible that these holdings are part of a trust? or held by businesses in which taylor has a stake?

The article isn't totally clear about how Taylor owns this property. I own stock in funds, for instance, and don't know exactly which companies are held by the fund.

It is possible that taylor, through his bank and other businesses, isn't truly aware that he holds these properties - and the paper isn't really clear about this.

A similar ploy was used by Taylors people to paint Shuler in a bad light. Shuler owned stocks that he didn't even know about since they were managed by someone else.

He couldn't tell the truth. He was a politician.
