Dems Should Call on Elissa Slotkin to get an Eligibility Review

LANSING, Mich., February 6, 2018 – Michigan Republican Party Deputy Chief of Staff Sarah Anderson called on the Michigan Democratic Party to ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for her congressional run. It was discovered that Slotkin took her homestead deduction in September 2017 on the only home she owns—a residence in Washington DC that she purchased in 2007 and still owns. Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction despite registering to vote in Michigan in May 2017. Slotkin was required to inform DC in June 2017 about her Michigan registration but ignored it to take advantage of DC residency.

“If Democrats are requiring Abdul El-Sayed to get an eligibility review for declaring 2 primary residences, they should ask Elissa Slotkin to get an eligibility review for pretending to have 2 primary residences,” said Anderson. “Slotkin took the DC homestead deduction on the DC home she owns. She did not disclose the DC home on her personal financial disclosure. Why is Elissa Slotkin hiding her DC home? It’s shady behavior like that which will make Michigan voters question the integrity of DC insider Elissa Sloktin.”

According to DC Office of Tax and Revenue records, Slotkin bought her DC home in 2007 and took her homestead deduction in DC throughout 2017. DC law requires the homeowner to be a current DC resident to qualify for the homestead deduction. Elissa Slotkin still owns her DC home but did not disclose it on her personal financial disclosure.
