KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Congressman Emanuel Cleaver is working to rid himself of a suburban Kansas City car wash that has created financial problems.
Cleaver initially told KMBZ radio that the car wash had been sold. However, an adviser told The Kansas City Star that a sale is still "pending." Bank of America has sued Cleaver's company, Cleaver Co.
The bank alleges that the company has defaulted on the $1.3 million loan taken out for the Grandview car wash. Because of penalties and interest, about $1.5 million now is owed on the 2002 loan.
The Small Business Administration guaranteed about 75 percent of the loan.
Cleaver is a former two-term Kansas City mayor and is running for re-election in Missouri's 5th Congressional District.
