County exec candidate Chris Abele racks up thousands in parking tickets
Chris Abele, the millionaire philanthropist running for county exec, doesn't pay any state or federal income taxes.
That's been well-documented.
But the guy apparently doesn't mind dipping into his wallet to help the city's meter readers meet their monthly quotas.
Records show Abele has racked up 92 parking tickets since Jan. 1, 2007. Of those tickets - which run $22 each - he paid a $5 late fee on 26 and a $15 late fee once.
Total cost: $2,169.
To most people, that's real money, but it's just a drop in the bucket for the scion of wealthy Boston businessman John Abele.
"Chris is on the go a lot," explained Brandon Lorenz, Abele's campaign spokesman.
Like nobody else is.
