WFAA News Report: Senator John Carona Featured
When asked what the "priority of payment" should be, Carona said it should be like it is with most associations.
Channel 8 (WFAA) then posted an Associa/PMG collection schedule showing the fining policies, about liens on properties after 3 months of non payments, and after the 4th month to go into non-judicial foreclosure. From this collection schedule they highlighted that the last item to be paid was "Sixth - Regular Assessments," but the first item to be paid was, "First - Cost of Collection, including Attorneys fees."
After this insert was shown, Shipp asked Carona, "So attorneys should be paid first?" Carona replied, "No I'm not saying that." To which Shipp responded, "You're not saying that?" Carona said, "No." Shipp persisted, "Isn't that the policy of your property management association?" To which, Carona held his hand up, turned sharply, and said, "end of interview."
Carona is then seen walking away quickly from the interview room back onto the senate floor as Shipp follows explaining that Carona took off when he went to show him his own collection schedule policy. Shipp goes on to explain that when he followed him onto the senator floor, "Carona ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms to have me removed." See WFAA's Britt Shipp's full report...
