Yvonne Selcer, who is challenging Kirk Stenrud for the State Representative District 48A seat representing Minnetonka and Eden Prairie, filed a complaint Monday with the Office of Administrative Hearings.
In the complaint form for violation of the Fair Campaign Practices Act, Selcer sited a mailer paid for by the House Republican Campaign Committee that stated “Selcer even failed to pay her own 2012 property taxes on time.”
Selcer said she did pay her taxes on time in 2012, as evidenced by the Hennepin County Attorney’s public website.
"My husband and I take our reputations very seriously," Selcer said in a news release. "We’ve never had a late property tax payment in our lives, so to have someone intentionally spread a lie like this is disappointing."

Selcer stated in the complaint that the mailer could not only harm her reputation but also the reputation of her husband Chuck, a CPA who has lectured nationwide on the subject of ethics.
