who cheats on his taxes and then writes a $70k check. Yup - of the people and for the people all the way.

He paid the $70,000. Just to the wrong people.

Let's see, I take responsibility, but it's my accountants fault..hmm. Al baby, you either hired someone who's totally incompetent(although not a practicing CPA, I could have given you better advise than this) or ignored his advise. Either way, some serious questions about your judgement for someone who desires to be senator.

I love how Franken says he paid taxes to the city and state where he lived, but fails to mention that it was New York--NOT MINNESOTA!!!

It looks like Franken's campaign is in the early stages of implosion. Who are the Dem's going to end up nominating to lose to Coleman?

To not know, or not hire someone who does know, how to report income in several states illustrates that he flunks the "ability to get elected" test.

Al really needs to be more careful in the accountants he hires. Perhaps he should take a year or two off to clear up all the mistakes that haven't surfaced yet.

Why an accountant that works for a firm specializing in entertainers did not know that you have to file a return in any state you earn income in is very odd. I think the other question is did he pay $70,000 to the state he lived or a different amount?

Too bad Ciresi dropped out, looks like the Dems are stuck with a lazy, tax-evading, clown. Do you dare put your hope in Nelson-Pullmeyer?
