MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Mo' problems for Mo' Money. The Memphis-based company will be the focus of a Congressional hearing on Thursday in Washington, DC. On Sunday night, Mo' Money co-founder Markey Granberry fired back.
"Mo' Money taxes as far as I know has not committed no crimes," Granberry wrote in an email to abc24.com.
The hearing announcement comes as lawyers for the embattled tax-preparer will be in a Chicago courtroom Monday morning related to a lawsuit filed there by the Illinois Attorney General.
The Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security on the House Judiciary Committee will hold the hearing, after Congressman Steve Cohen joined Virginia Congressman Bobby Scott in calling for congressional action over the Mo' Money tax mess in early 2012.
"I am pleased Chairman Sensenbrenner has agreed to hold this important hearing," said Rep. Scott. "While it will not focus specifically on the firm Mo Money Taxes, this hearing is critical to Congress being able to review and improve applicable federal civil and criminal laws."
"I think that may mean there really will be justice. Which is all I wanted all along," said Felicia Holley, a Mo' Money customer.
"I wish that I could have a front row chair in Washington D.C. myself, my mother and I," she added.
The hearing will be on Thursday at 9 a.m. CT.
