Tom Daschle has shirked his “patriotic duty” as Joe Biden defines it.
That’s right, yet another hypocrite who wants you and me to pay as much in taxes as possible and will see to it that we rot in prison if we don’t has been caught dodging his own tax responsibilities:
Former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle paid $140,000 in back taxes and interest in recent weeks Ã¢â‚¬â€œ much of it due to a car and driver loaned to him for free by a friend and Democratic fundraiser.
Daschle used the Cadillac and driver around Washington while working as a consultant to a New York City private equity firm, InterMedia Advisors. He used the limo 80 percent for personal use Ã¢â‚¬â€œ resulting in unreported income of more than $255,000 for the three years, Senate Finance Committee documents show.
Daschle should have purchased Tim Geithner’s “TimboTax” and he’d have gotten through this mess cleanly — maybe he still will.
How long will it be until we hear the “oversight” excuse from Daschle? Put me down for three minutes.
By the way, here’s the definition of “Oversight” in the liberal dictionary:
Oversight: [oh-ver-sahyt] Ã¢â‚¬â€œnoun, liberal 1. an excusable omission or error on tax forms due to distraction caused by tireless attempts to help as many children, poor and minorities as possible.
Ed and Elaine Brown should have been wealthy, pro high taxes liberals, and they’d be in cabinet positions in the Obama administration instead of in prison.
