A year ago an exclusive Nebraska Watchdog investigation exposed Rogert’s failure to pay the sales tax on his high powered speed boat. Nebraska Watchdog then uncovered dozens of other individuals also using a “boat dealer loophole” to avoid sales taxes. That loophole has been examined by a panel of state lawmakers, and legislation to close the loophole is possible.
In a three way race in May, Democrat Rogert narrowly won the Primary defeating Republican Lydia Brasch 43-39. As Rogert and Brasch get set for their November 2nd rematch, many Democrats who claim Rogert is the GOP’s top target in the state legislature also believe it is still Rogert’s race to lose.
In this exclusive Nebraska Watchdog report Joe Jordan finds voters in District 16 have plenty to say about Rogert’s taxes, but as you’ll see Kent Rogert is not one of them.
