She said she was 11 months behind in her mortgage for the Las Vegas home, which was filled with 10-year-old furniture of ''fire sale value.'' Her ailing mother, Kitty Loren, was living there with Loren-Maltese's daughter until Kitty Loren became legally blind, Loren-Maltese said. The government didn't move to seize the home until her mother moved out, she said in a court filing. ''The health condition of defendant's mother is now causing the defendant to be penalized,'' Loren-Maltese wrote in a court filing, saying the government told her it wouldn't take the home if a minor was living inside. I would be less funny if we the tax payers weren't paying for the 'tupidity. But decades and generations later, this is where you tax dollars go folks.
