The Final Minority Report

Because Even Minorities Oppose Liberalism & Statism

Rangel: “Don’t Ask Questions About My Taxes”

I’m actually surprised that Rangel didn’t use the old mantra that it’s racist to question a black man. Seriously. At least he was honest about how he feels about reporters doing…ya know, actual reporting.

Our intrepid Hot Air TV special correspondent Jason Mattera is back on Capitol Hill! You’ve watched him corner smear merchants Jack Murtha and John Kerry, ask William “Cold Cash” Jefferson for bribe-freezing tips, and roam the Democrat National Convention in an orange Gitmo suit exposing far Left insanity. This time he catches tax cheat Charlie Rangel and confronts him about his mounting ethical and financial scandals.

Charlie Rangel’s message for Jason – and for all you bothersome taxpayers wondering about his shady rental property deals, publicly-subsidized Cadillac, and unpaid taxes:

“Why don’t you mind your goddamned business?”

Obama’s Cabinet Nominees Fail to Pay Taxes – Hope & Change?

Has someone else noticed a pattern here with Obama’s nominees to cabinet level, or the equivalent, positions?

  1. Ron Kirk (Democrat) – Mayor of Dallas, TX – Nominated to be the US Trade Representative – Fails to pay income taxes for three years.
  2. Tom Daschle (Democrat) – Former Senator of South Dakota – Nominated to be the Sec. of Health and Human Services – Fails to pay $128,000 in income taxes over two years.
  3. Nancy Killefer (Democrat) – Former Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget – Nominated to be the first chief performance officer – Fails to pay employment taxes on household maids for a year and a half.
  4. Timothy Geithner (Democrat) – Former Treasury official – Nominated to be the Treasury Secretary – Fails to pay income taxes for three years and fails to pay employment taxes on household maids for half a year.

Honorable Mention and Runner-Ups

  1. Bill Richardson (Democrat) – Governor of New Mexico – Nominated to be Commerce Secretary – Charged by a grand jury for accepting money in exchange for political favors back home.
  2. Charles Rengal (Democrat) – Representative from New York – Chair of the House Ways & Means Committee (responsible for writing the tax code) – Fails to pay $75,000 in rental income.
  3. Chriss Dodd (Democrat) – Senator from Connecticut – Chair of the Senate Banking Committee (Responsible for overseeing banks and mortgage insurance companies) – Fails to explain how he received a free cottage in Ireland after helping a felon-on-the-run get a presidential pardon from Clinton AND how he managed to get a low-interest loan from CountryWide Mortgage (a company he is suppose to be regulating and overseeing) when others could not.
  4. Jack Murtha (Democrat) – Representative from Pennslyvania – Chair of the House Defense Appropriations Committee (determines how much money is spent on national defense) – Has been accused of accepting lobbyist contributions to his campaigns in exchange for funneling defense contracts to his contributors.
  5. Rahm Emanuel (Democrat) – Representative from Chicago – Current Chief of Staff or Obama – Has been paying zero rent since moving to DC.
  6. Louis Susman (Democrat) – Banker from Chicago – Fundraised for Obama and “gave” $300,000 for the inaugural ball – Tapped to be the Amabassador to England which is a break from his promise to have nothing to do with “pay-to-play” politics.

It sounds like there just might be a corruption problem when it comes to Washington! And for those of you who want to say “but the Republican’s do it too!”, remember that

  • (a) Democrats are in charge of both the House, Senate, and the Presidency, and
  • (b) It’s a bit hypocratic to say that it is patriotic to pay taxes for programs that American may not want when it’s own political leaders aren’t even paying taxes, and
  • (c) Show me who within the GOP currently has the same amount of personal problems as the Democrats, and, on top of that,
  • (d) Congress (which is runned by Democrats) killed a bill that would have required the Ethics Committee to investigate lawmaker-lobbyist ties.
