Illegal tax-free gasoline is great for Democrats but bad for the American people? Democrats break the law to cut their cost of gasoline? Where is this change? Report: Democratic Convention’s Hosts Getting Tax-Free Gas by FOXNews.com Wednesday, July 23, 2008 Report: Democratic Convention’s Hosts Getting Tax-Free Gas - America’s Election HQ The committee hosting the Democratic National Convention this August in Denver has been taking advantage of tax-free gas through the city of Denver for the past four months, according to a report by the Rocky Mountain News. The newspaper reports that, once the practice was made public, an aide to Mayor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, issued a statement Tuesday saying that members of the committee would pay full market price for gasoline, including the 40 cents a gallon in state and federal taxes. Committee members apparently have been allowed to fill up their tanks at city pumps. The city doesn’t pay taxes on its gasoline, prompting questions over whether the host committee would be exempt from the taxes as well when they reimburse the city for the gas. Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said the practice “would seem” to be illegal, and he referred the matter to the state Department of Revenue, according to the Rocky Mountain News.
