Chris Murphy is using this as an opportunity to take shots at his opponent for the Connecticut Senate seat. The McMahons were late on paying half of their annual $54,110 tax bill. On Friday, they paid the full year bill, plus $1,217 in interest.
Murphy claims that Linda was "caught red-handed skipping out on the taxes on her $4 million luxury penthouse at the Trump Tower and only paid it back today." McMahon's campaign responded that the city of Stamford only mailed the tax bill two weeks ago (September 13) and it was "the only bill received by the McMahons for this tax period." Her campaign spokesman claimed Murphy was "just another corrupt, career politician who will do or say anything to get elected to higher office."
