burt-and-green2Courtney Greene has terrible taste in men. Earlier this week, we learned that Greene is Rep. Kerry Burt’s gal pal. Greene and Burt have been friends since college. Rep. Burt chose to call Greene instead of the woman he and his kids live with to bail him out of jail when he was arrested for drunk driving back in February. Burt has also recently been accused of defrauding the Price Laboratory School his kids attend of $37,000 in tuition. Yes, Kerry Burt is a real piece of work!

It’s hard to think that anyone could have a worse year than Kerry Burt is having, but I think Courtney Greene can give him a run for his money.

Mrs. Greene is married to Franklin Greene, who used to own Top Value Foods, a now defunct inner city grocery store, and Quality Ford in Des Moines. The grocery store went belly-up in 2005, and Quality Ford closed its doors in April of 2007. Last year, Greene and her husband filed bankruptcy. At that time they showed $10 million in debts, and $30,000 in assets. The couple also lost their million dollar home in West Des Moines, and are now renting.

In April of this year, Franklin Greene was indicted on federal embezzlement charges. Greene is accused of taking money that was supposed to go into his employee’s 401(k) accounts. So Rep. Burt steals money from schools, and Mr. Greene steals money from his workers. Worse yet, her “friend” Kerry calls at 3 a.m. to bail him out of jail after partying with the Governor.

The Greene’s also owe the government a bunch of money. They owe the IRS $1.1 million, and the Iowa Department of Revenue $625,019.00. I’m sure glad that Governor Culver gave her a job so that she can settle up with the state. It’s going to take a while since she only makes $60k a year. $60k is nothing to sneeze at when your job entails advising lawmakers to avoid being photographed drinking with Culver and offering to drive their drunken ass home if they can’t behave themselves while in Des Moines.

Courtney Greene sure can pick-em…

I sure hope Courtney wasn’t thinking that Burt could be her main squeeze while her husband sits in prison…I just wish my tax dollars were not going to pay for these bums.
