U.S. Rep. has wages garnished to pay for carwash investment

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Emanuel Cleaver was issued a wage garnishment order to repay more than $1.3 million he and his wife owe on a carwash investment, according to the Kansas City Star.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver and his wife owe more than $1.3 million on a carwash investment. He was issued a second wage garnishment order by Jackson County, according to the Kansas City Star.
