Former state auditor fails to pay Income Tax...Claire, really?

The woman should never have been elected. Thread should say property tax. My error....


Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., Failed to Pay $287,000 in Property Taxes on Aircraft
3:42 PM, MAR 21, 2011 • BY MARK HEMINGWAYSingle PagePrintLarger TextSmaller Text
In a conference call with reporters, Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill just disclosed that she failed to pay $287,000 in property taxes related to her co-ownership of a private aircraft. This scandal comes quickly on the heels of recent revelations that McCaskill improperly billed taxpayers for use of the same private aircraft, for which McCaskill reimbursed the Treasury $88,000:

Sen. Claire McCaskill is selling the personal plane that has caused her turbulence in recent weeks after POLITICO revealed she used taxpayer money to cover the cost of political travel.

The first-term Democrat said she was very happy she was able to convince her husband to "sell the damn plane."

In a conference call Monday afternoon, McCaskill revealed that after her own review of the plane's records, she had not paid personal property taxes on the aircraft over the past four years.

"I have discovered that the personal property taxes on the plane have not been paid. There should have been a reporting to the county of the existence of this plane. There are people I could blame for this, but I know better. I take full responsibility," McCaskill said to reporters, after revealing she had conducted her own audit of all 89 flights she had taken.

"This was a mistake, It should have been reported in Missouri. It will be paid in Missouri today," she said.

McCaskill said she would be sending a check for $287,273 to St. Louis County Monday for the back taxes she owed between 2007 and 2010.

I like how she intimates that there are people she could blame before claiming to take full responsibility, as if there's any virtue in claiming to take responsibility in a situation without consequences.

So does her check include penalties and interest like any of us would have to pay or is his another "oops I fudged my taxes" claim by another Democrat that will be forgiven?

Yeah, "I could blame someone else" is like having your cake and eating it, too. That's saying someone else is to blame, but not naming names so the supposed person can't defend himself.

Not many times you see a politician say they take full responsibility.

I don't give her too much credit for taking full responsibility when she's implying it's not her fault.

She could have said nothing and just paid the taxes owed. According to the article she conducted her own audit and found the error, and not someone else. Sounds fairly responsible to me to publically reveal the error.

You're just trying to play a caughtcha game when there isn't one there. But I guess when ou have to whine and cry about something...

She probably does have reason to be upset with her accountant, but don't "take full responsibility" just because you feel like you have to, to avoid more bad press. Just come out and say you f'd up.
