Breaking: Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., Failed to Pay $287,000 in Property Taxes on Aircraft
Weekly Standard ^ | 3/21/2011 | Staff

Posted on 03/21/2011 3:12:17 PM PDT by BallandPowder

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:

"George Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black." - Clair McCaskill

Utterly despicable. She has earned the enmity of all decent people with that statement; easily the most repugnant and loathsome statement I've ever heard from a modern American politician. I will relish her defeat.

An ordinary person doing this, fugeddaboudit. Your in a world of hurt.

A member of the elected elites does it? It's more along these lines:

Well, when I found out about this I was furious. We've launched an intense internal investigation, with the cooperation of the Missori Department of Taxation and Finance, the Phelps County Prosecutor's Office, and the Senate Investigative Service, and nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than I do. And I can assure the public that as soon as I know the answers, they'll know the answers. And now, because this is an active investigation, I will not be able to take any questions at this time.

This is becoming a huge headache for McCaskill. Right now, the likely Republican field is second-tier (Ann Wagner, Sarah Steelman, and Todd Akin), but this helps them immensely.

I believe Pelosi was spending over $25,000 a month in US taxpayers bucks just for booze for herself and her family and groupies on the exec jet she grabbed

She spent a horrific amount on liquor, food and flowers all the time. I’ve read all about it but can’t keep records handy on all that stuff.

Now she’s fainted in Italy and was in the hospital??

They said Pelosi fainted, she probably fell over drunk. I wonder how was that socialist health care over there?

Lol, I don’t know if she is a big drinker but it could be so. And - she would get the best of health care, not what you and I would, that’s for sure.

I disagree those are second-tier candidates (except for perhaps Wagner). I saw polling showing Steelman apparently leading for the nomination, but the big problem she faces is a visceral opposition from the MO GOP establishment. An ugly GOP primary is the only saving grace for McCaskill at this point.

If Sarah Steelman were to win the nomination, one hopes that the state GOP would have the good sense to rally around her.

Ed Martin — He almost took out Russ Carnahan in the 3rd district... The STL vote manufacturing machine is the only reason he lost.

He is a solid conservative.

I don’t think that’s a second tier field, personally. Steelman has won statewide office and narrowly lost the GOP governor primary to Kenny Hulshof. Todd Akin is a respected congressman from the wealthy west county St. Louis suburbs. Ann Wagner is a former chairman of the Missouri GOP. All good choices, IMO. I really like Akin a lot - he’s a conservative’s conservative.
