Tom Daschle

So, err:

But that claim was shaken by revelations of Daschle\’s failure to pay some $128,000 in taxes owed for use of a driver and limousine provided to him by a media firm. Daschle was chairman of the firm\’s advisory board.

Daschle said his failure to pay the taxes was a mistake, and paid $140,000 in arrears and penalties in January .

He only paid the taxes in order to get the job. Now that he\’s not getting the job, does he get those taxes back?

  1. I take it that there must be a shortage of senior Democrats who pay their taxes. Probably ol’ Jimmy Carter does – why not offer him a job?

  2. “I take it that there must be a shortage of senior Democrats who pay their taxes.”

    The irony is simply delicious.

  3. Normal Joe Blow would be looking at jail time, but not for ol’ Tommy Boy. No wonder Americans have such a low opinion of most members of Congress and the Senate. What a farce!
