    So......Rush slams people for years on drug abuse and advocates no second chance, but when he is busted for drugs....we look the other way. Beck forgets to pay some taxes...and we look the other way. GOTCHA!

    Comparing media personalities to politicians doesn't work. Never has, never will.

    There is a difference in avoiding paying personal income tax and not claiming income from off shore investments a la Charles Rangel and being a CEO and having an underling file inaccurate tax returns or not paying the tax bill.

    I'm one of those underlings. If I don't pay the tax bill my boss doesn't necessarily know about it until he is hit in the face with a huge fine. I may lose my job over that, but he is ultimately responsible for the failure. That doesn't mean he had anything to do with my failures. The same goes for the treasurer. She signs the returns, but may not know if taxes have not been paid.

    If it can be proven that he told them not to pay the taxes or had knowledge of the failure, that is one thing. It is not tax fraud to have made an error on a return... at least, I hope to hell it isn't... {gulp}
