From Russia with Love?

If this was the Lake County Treasurer Telethon, the band would be playing What the World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love about now.

The News-Sun recently reported that Lake County counted some $73,000,000 in property tax pre-payments, last year:
Lake County puts early property tax payments at $73 million and climbing
But now Lake County Treasurer David Stolman (Republican) has posted revised numbers:

Record Number Prepay Property Taxes In Lake Co.
The Lake County Treasurer's Office is now finalizing all prepayments of 2017 real estate taxes and will be mailing receipts soon.
Going from an initial estimate of $73 million up to $250 million is quite a hike, even by County Government standards.

Your LakeCountyEye looked for some explanation of this dramatic actuarial discrepancy on (Republican) David Stolman's Facebook page:

In related news, US President Donald J Trump (Republican) says there has been no collusion with Russia:
Donald Trump can’t stop claiming there hasn’t been any collusion with Russia. On Thursday, during an impromptu interview with The New York Times at Trump’s golf club in West Palm Beach, the president set social media on fire after he insisted 16 different times that there had been “no collusion” discovered between his administration and Russia.
Trump Insisted 16 Times That There's Been 'No Collusion' with Russia
Cue the balalaikas.
