Gubernatorial Candidate Jim Justice Has a History of Unpaid Mine Safety Fines and Taxes

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Justice is the leading mine safety delinquent in the nation - and he hasn't been paying his fines, according to an NPR investigation.

Justice owes $15 million in mine safety fines to six states. His mines also have a history of not paying county taxes.

In collaboration with NPR, West Virginia Public Broadcasting created a timeline documenting Justice's financial actions since 2011.
