Actual farmer sues Devin Nunes for claiming to be a farmer on ballot

By Caroline Orr - August 10, 2018

Devin Nunes' constituents say he's forgotten about the farmers in his district and has no business calling himself one of them.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is not a farmer, but he likes to call himself one. Now, an actual farmer — who also happens to be one of Nunes’ constituents — is taking court action to stop Nunes from claiming to be something he’s not.

Paul Buxman, a California stone fruit farmer from the town of Dinuba, filed a petition with the Sacramento Superior Court asking the courts to remove the occupation “farmer” from Nunes’ description on the state’s ballots before this year’s midterm elections.

In California, candidates have the option of listing an occupation next to their name on the ballot. Nunes apparently decided that owning stake in a few wineries across the state qualifies him to be called a farmer, but Buxman isn’t having it.

“I don’t believe [he] has had any income from farming for at least 10 years,” Buxman told The Fresno Bee. “He has some interest in a few wineries, but he’s distanced himself from those and says he has no involvement in their day-to-day management.”

He should correctly put beside his name Traitor

2. It's so Nunes can apply for some of the $12 billion. That's the kind of farmer he is.

Now I understand the aide package. People like Nunes who are "farmers" will be getting all the money.

13. The man is a fraud. Good for Buxman for calling him out. Being a farmer in occupation

is actually defined in law because it has tax ramifications. You have to have made a certain amount of income from farming during the last five years to qualify as a farmer. I don't know if owning a share in a winery qualifies.
