What's In It For Me-Al Franken?
Why does it seem that most of the people that want to run our lives don't seem to be able to handle their own affairs worth a damn. From the crooked Obama nominees to Portland's new mayor, they somehow think that laws and rules are for the common sheeple.
Not funny, funnyman Al Franken has just admitted that he owes over $50,000 in back taxes and penalties. He also was hit with a $25,000 penalty for failing to carry worker's comp insurance for his employees in New York. He blames the shortage on his accountant. This is just slightly more plausible than Tom Daschle's Turbo Tax excuse.
Franken is also demanding that the Minnesota Supreme Court direct the Governor and the Sec. of State issue an election certificate declaring him the winner of the senate election even though under current Minnesota law, a winner cannot be certified until all legal avenues of appeal have been exhausted. Pretty brazen for cheating tax scofflaw.
