"As promised today on [podcast] Chrisley Confessions, here are the public documents regarding Josh Waites with the Georgia Dept of Revenue," Chrisley wrote under the documents. "This man is the Chief of police for the Dept: He launched his investigation against us in 2016 , he has lied , manipulated and created false numbers and reported to the press that we owed 2.2 million dollars to the Georgia Dept of Revenue , yet this man himself had a federal IRS Tax lien filed against him personally as well as a lawsuit file against him from his former employer and a judgement entered for over 51k , he then filed bankruptcy to avoid paying this judgment."
"Now I tell you all of this because I’ve made a commitment to see this through to the end and so that he’s no longer allowed to to do this to Georgia residents or anyone else," he continued. "Josh Waites has far bigger issues than what i am posting tonight and I will be posting those as i am allowed .. I encourage anyone who has had any dealings with this man to contact myself or our attorneys as the list is growing."
"I plan to disclose further corruption within the Georgia Dept of Revenue in the coming weeks and will be releasing those names at that time," the reality star promised. "We appreciate the huge level of overwhelming support that we have received and ask that you continue to lift us up in prayer as we work to shed light where there’s darkness."
