Democratic congressional candidate Scott Wallace's taxes suggest he was out of the country for more than two years while receiving tax credits in Maryland that require residency in the state for at least six months out of the year.

Wallace, a wealthy progressive philanthropist, is challenging first-term Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania's 1st Congressional District. Before moving back to the district to run for office, Wallace spent time in Maryland and South Africa running the Wallace Global Fund, his family's foundation, which has given millions to radical left-wing groups.

Wallace was hit with a $70,000 tax lien in Maryland, which the Congressional Leadership Fund, a group backed by House Majority Leader Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), has hammered the Democrat for. Wallace countered the group by releasing an advertisement and his campaign said that he had paid his taxes in full upon seeing his bills.
