They never make a mistake that results in their over payment of taxes.
They never realize their mistakes until they're up for federal office.
And, it's always the guys who voted to raise YOUR taxes when they were legislators.
By the way - - Tom Daschle's "tax issues" involve "underpaying" "more than $128,000 in back taxes . . . for 2005 to 2007" which "covers income from consulting work, use of a car service and lower deductions for charitable contributions". In other words, he failed to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and non cash income, and then lied about how much money he gave to charity. Think of how much income you need to "under report" (i.e., lie about) in order to owe $128,000 in taxes - - $250,000? $300,000? $400,000?
Is this only wrong when your political opponents do it?
