From the Poorhouse to the Penthouse! 

Christy and Marlin Stutzman exposed!

Christy Stutzman is currently running for State Representative in Elkhart County.  Christy and Marlin moved into their new house in the State House District this past fall, a few weeks before the deadline to qualify to run for this office.  We call that a “Carpetbagger”.

When the Stutzman’s entered Congress, they were required to file detailed financial disclosures documenting their financial holdings.

    Christy and Marlin Stutzman went from a negative net worth of -$84,496 in 2010 to a net worth of $1,554,508 in 2014.  Yes, that’s correct!  -$84,496 net worth in 2010 to a $1.5 million net worth in 2014.

Below you will find summaries of their financial disclosures that are available for public inspection on www.OpenSecrets.org.  The disclosures are buried deep into their website, but Indiana Talks was able to “dig into the project” and expose Christy and Marlin Stutzman.

You decide for yourself.  Does something seem wrong here?  Stuff like this is why people don’t trust, or like, Career Politicians like Christy and Marlin Stutzman.
