Sounds like he’s well-qualified for the job.
The question is (but won’t be asked by the “media”), will they garnish his paycheck?
Someone’s going to have to pay his fair share for him. It’s only fair.
The guy’s story is so fake blaming the real estate crash.
How dumb does he think the public is?
Let me guess, rebuilding the party platform is going to involve a lot of fund raising?
If he keeps this up, he could qualify to be Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury.
He’s a Democrat but, he’s still a human being.
I know several people who took a big hit in 2008 and are in the same boat.
Their construction and development businesses just went from running to broken overnight. They are scared to death of the State and IRS but, they keep talking to them and working on paying their taxes.
The amount they owe is staggering when one considers how much revenue the had pre 2008 and they are at 25% of that today.
I don’t know anyone in the construction industry and related trades who didn’t take a huge hit and it’s tough.
Can’t imagine owing $287K and it must take his breath away.
I for one admire the guy for being upfront about his situation and when one thinks of it he owes more in taxes than most people make in a year.
