Daschle Owed Even More Money than Previously Reported
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?
