Daschle Owed Even More Money than Previously Reported

ABC has this.

On January 2 of this year, Daschle filed amended tax returns to pay the $140,167 in unpaid taxes.

The Finance Committee staff still is reviewing whether travel and entertainment services provided Tom and Linda Daschle by EduCap, Inc., Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation, Academy Achievement, and Loan to Learn should be reported as income. Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported that Daschle made use of the jet belonging to EduCap, a non-profit student loan organization. . . . .

$140,000 in overdue taxes that are only now paid in January? This amount of owed taxes is greater than most people make in income. At what point does it matter how much money is owed? If Obama only views $140,000 as "some tax issues," what amount of owed taxes would represent real tax issues? If these Democrats cheat on their taxes and only have to come clean when they are being appointed to important positions, when will the Democrats admit that the tax system is broken?

He owes more money on consulting income, $83K alone in 2007.

This old CPA figures this is self-employment income, like Geithner's from IMF. Did Wee Tommy pay his self-employment taxes or did he "forget" those too?

These guys are liars or idiots. Either way, I shiver that they are helping chart the course of this country.

It would appear though that one way to sniff out tax fraud is to have Bama give you a a job.

"Pay to play in a brand new way", that's a change, yessir.
