Former Democrat Senator Ton Daschle makes Tim Geithner looks like a piker when it comes to not paying taxes. Just as Geithner, Daschle suddenly discovered the “discrepancy” when he was nominated for Secretary of Health and Human Services. However, Daschle seems to be head and shoulders above Geithner when it comes to dodging the IRS. Phony charitable donations, failure to report in kind compensation, and failure to report $83,333 in income in 2007.
Jake Tapper reports:
With the unreported income from the use of a car service in the amounts of $73,031 in 2005, $89,129 in 2006 and $93,096 in 2007; the unreported consulting income of $83,333 in 2007; and the adjusted reductions in charitable contributions, Daschle adds a total of $353,552 in additional income and reduced donations, meaning an additional tax payment of $128,203, in addition to $11,964 in interest.
Is this a face you can trust or what?
