Posted on 12/20/2009 9:43:36 AM PST by marshmallow
In a potentially devastating development for Tiger Woods, his growing sex scandal and hush money payoffs have caught the attention of the FBI and IRS.
A top source in Washington, D.C., divulged that in mid-December "discussions were underway" involving those two government agencies about whether to launch a federal probe of the billionaire golfer.
"They haven't pulled the trigger yet, but they smell blood in the water," the source told The ENQUIRER.
"Their interest was heightened when they heard reports suggesting that Tiger may have been paying for high-class call girls.
"It had already come out that Tiger's company may have paid for the travel of at least one of his girlfriends for a recent hookup in Australia. If Tiger is using company money to do it - and if illegal activity such as prostitution is taking place - then they're going to come down on him."

The Mann Act.
Also, Congress doesn't like the competition. What would be so special about being a Congressman if just anyone could use the "company" money for personal sexual adventures?
What are you? A ‘missionary’ afficionado? Methinks most would say ‘each leg in a different state.......’ Wasn’t really planning on degenerating this discussion into a problem of ‘what position do you use’.....that would be threadjacking, and, of course, I’d never do that.....
I think I’ll go gnaw on a chair leg for a few. Merry Christmas.
It's not BS, it's tax evasion. We just gave one of our daughters some money to help her by her first home. We paid taxes on that gift. Why do I have to pay taxes on a gift for the purchase of a home, but Tiger doesn't have to pay taxes when he indulges his johnson?
Why on earth does she deserve HALF? She had nothing whatsoever with creating the money,,,,nothing. And please, no law lecture, what im asking is why she deserves half of something she had no hand in creating.
Amazing how women talk about “equality”, but still think sex or marriage with a rich guy is a completely valid financial entitlement to half of everything he has. This is the *very* definition of prostitution. If she wants to be rich like that, she needs to work on her golf game.
I commiserate with you on having had to pay gift tax on what you gave your daughter. My mother did the same with her grandchildren, only she looked at the rules long enough to figure out how to tie it to an inheritance gift and filed for it, legally, and didn't have to pay a dime.
And by all accounts, Washington DC is a Mecca for prostitution. Maybe they should clean that place up first. Not a small hypocrisy for the boys in DC to attack anyone for illegal use of money, and renting women.
Hard to imagine Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, etc,,arguing that the FEDERAL government should become involved in a quibble arising out of a man’s affair or visit to a prostitute.
First, I'm a conservative. I couldn't care less what's fair. It's not a word that is in my vocabulary. But, I do care what's legally obligated. If you're legally obligated to pay taxes on something, then you should pay it, irrespective of how much you've paid already.
I don't know where the funds came from, but even if they came out of his own personal bank account, he is still responsible for paying the gift taxes.
These are not small amounts of money we're talking about. It has been reported that Woods had many women on a kind of monthly retainer, paying varying amounts with some receiving in excess of $10K a month. That adds up to some real cash, in a hurry.
Tax liability just isn't for the middle class. It's for the rich and the mega wealthy. Their "fair share" is whatever the US Tax Code says their fair share is, not a penny less.
Why so many vulgar fecal references? From someone who isn’t taking it seriously, that seems a tad angry.
“daughters some money to help her by her first home. We paid taxes on that gift.”
Good point,,,THAT makes sense put that way.
The 'law' and equity is no longer 'fair' and no longer just. Here is where you and I part ways.
“Excuse me, but when did it become a Federal crime for buying a piece of ass?”
I think the issue here is hauling ass around the world.
Yup, just like microsoft!!! They didin’t send their bread to K street, and look what the feds tried to do!
The circumstances could be a violation, or multiple violations, of the Federal Mann Act (18 U.S.C. § 24212424), just for starters.
And you’re excused.

The word which I used is a common colloquialism used in a variety of fashions. Your choice to assign it to a purely ‘fecal’ meaning is yours, not mine. My point was that there are better things to think about a multi-multi millionaire and his sex troubles.
This country is devolving into an abortion of contorted and twisted Democratic revenge laws aimed at the destruction of it and you quote the ‘Mann Act’ to me? Get real.
You asked how arranging for a tryst with a prostitute could possibly be a Federal Crime, and I told you that depending on the circumstances, it could be in violation of The Mann Act.
That’s very ‘real.’ It may be bad policy. It may be stupid. But it’s a valid answer to your question, whether you can cope with it or not.
Barney was not paying for it. He was giving it away to the boy’s for free.

Everything is the business of the federal government now. If they want to arrest you for giving your kids' breakfast, they will.
When you write it off as a "business expense" and commit TAX FRAUD, that's when. You can rob, rape, and pillage and pretty much get away with it but don't ever try to screw the tax man (unless you work for the Obama Administration, then you get to be Treasury Sec.)
Not all that familiar with tax laws as most average people are not,but if the time limit for 1099’s are three years,[again I am assuming,]He should 1099 all of them and take the hit on fines and such over the legal time limit.
I am probably wrong,but it might quiet some of them down,meaning the hookers and their attys.And,in the long run,save him some money.
I have never been a fan of Tiger due to his I am all this attitude,he is the one who chose the plasticanated[sp]hookers
I feel for the family.This will NEVER go away no matter how it is portrayed.
I feel sad for the children and I find it hard to believe his wife was unaware of the situation.I hope she was.
I thought non profit tax excempt foundations were created, so rich people could travel, pig out and screw on the taxpayers’ dime.
But those prostitutes in Barney Frank’s home, were they boys? How young were they? His pimp friend, Steve Gobie, met with the principal of Chevy Chase Elementary School [Gabriel Massaro] — that much is known.
Frank denies knowing that his own home was a chicken house, and Gobie says Frank did.
I think claiming travel expences for your paramour in not an allowable deduction from a charatable 501C-3.
Never happen. 0bummer is Tiger’s bitch.
What gave it away? Maybe an auditor saw the Line Item - Other- Blowjob $10,000 on his tax return and it seemed suspicious.
