“Some 80 investors are suing the Harkeys and their firm, Point Center Financial Inc., for $43 million. The trial of their lawsuit was delayed indefinitely when Point Center filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February,” according to the O.C. Register.
One of the bones of contention is an ocean-view home in the exclusive Ritz Cove tract of Dana Point that Harkey and her husband ended up owning, even as their company went belly up.
“Harkey, who is serving her third and final term in the state Assembly, announced her candidacy last month for the State Board of Equalization in 2014. Something former investors in her husband’s Point Center Financial Inc., of Aliso Viejo, say she shouldn’t do,” according to the Capistrano Dispatch.
Harkey is clearly shameless. She won’t resign but hopefully the voters will reject her bid for the State Board of Equalization.
