Now comes news that a Missouri hospital says Republican congressional candidate Rick Crawford, who declared bankruptcy to avoid repayment of credit card and medical bills, has no debt from 1993 medical services. Earlier, Crawford had refused to sign a waiver to let the Democrat-Gazette see the hospital records. to check his assertion that he'd paid the bills. Now Crawford has signed a waiver, apparently.
A question remains from the abbreviated account linked above: WHEN did he repay the hospital debt? Way back when? Or in anticipation of his race this year? Or after this story broke? We await more news.
UPDATE: It would appear Crawford won't answer the pertinent question. Weaselly fellow.
