Irony – It’s Becoming A Democratic Exclusive
Tom Daschle a few years ago [pdf]:
Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter.
Tom Daschle today:
“Daschle spokeswoman Jenny Backus said he had known since June 208 that his luxury car and driver provided by wealthy Democratic donor, longtime friend and business associate Leo Hindery might be taxable, but never expected the amount to be such a ‘jaw-dropping’ sum and ‘thought it was being taken care of’ by his accountant.”
Of course he did. Let’s get real here – he never really checked or cared until he found out he was in line to take a cabinet post with the most ethical administration ever. And then suddenly it was both important and a priority.
Say “hi” to Tim Geithner for us, will you Tom?
Hope and change.
