Joy and Don are accused of playing 3-card Monte with their failed business:
A northern Ohio office supply company says in bankruptcy filings that a firm owned by a Republican congressional candidate sold it property without disclosing it was collateral for an unpaid loan.
The office supply company, Graphic Enterprises Inc. of North Canton, will seek $129,250 from Don Padgett, the husband of congressional candidate Joy Padgett, if it is saddled with the lien.
Joy Padgett, a state senator in a close race with Democrat Zack Space for the House seat held by scandal-scarred Republican Bob Ney, has been beset by personal money woes. She and her husband owned their own office supply company in Coshocton that went bankrupt, and they have since filed for personal bankruptcy protection.
