UPDATED: DNC Convention Gives Itself Gas Tax Holiday, Avoids Paying Federal And State Gas Taxes

The committee hosting the Democratic National Convention is using the city’s gas pumps to fill up on fuel, avoiding state and federal highway taxes, officials said today.

“By doing it this way, by running it through our Fleet Maintenance, that means that that fuel does not pay state or federal highway taxes,” Faatz said.

Christine Downs, a public works spokeswoman, said the host committee is not paying the city’s locked-in fuel rate but one that’s based on the weekly cost of gas. Downs was unable to provide council members an example.

Seriously people, it's time for the torches and pitchforks. I've had enough with this hypocritical, GD government bs.:mad:
