#1 22 Georgis legislators fail to pay taxes.03-05-2009, 12:51 PMBrown says he hasnít filed federal, state taxes in 2 years
By Travis Fain
ATLANTA ó Nearly 10 percent of Georgia state legislators are late filing or paying their state taxes, and state Sen. Robert Brown is apparently among them.Brown, D-Macon, said Wednesday heís not sure whether he actually owes the state or federal government any money because he hasnít filed tax returns. He said heís gotten extensions, but he declined to give more information or say for what years he received filing extensions.
He told Atlanta station WXIA-TV that he had not filed his income taxes at least in the past two years, according to a report on the stationís Web site. He volunteered the information while arguing against a change in Senate rules that would make it easier for the body to take action against, or even expel, members who donít pay their taxes.

I'll vote for that measure. This is pretty funny seeing as the O said he was going after international tax avoiders! Hell start here!

Time to break out the tar and feathers again. Actual public humiliation is the only way to stop this shit.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

we need a grass roots effort to get them all to submit to audits.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

When I went to work for the state of LA, I had to sign a statement that I was current on filing state income taxes. These politicians should at least be held to the same standards as civil service employees. My bad, most of the tax cheaters think they are privileged characters and do not have to follow the laws of us peons.
