Tim Geithner, Horrible Tax Cheapskate

News

Oh everybody was soooo excited that this New York guy, Tim "Timothy" Geithner, had deigned to be Barack Obama's treasury secretary. But now it comes out that for several years he paid state and federal income taxes but no payroll taxes! Well, everybody knows that payroll taxes are just forpoor people anyway. They're not even "real" taxes.


Here is the deal: back in the early part of this decade, Geithner worked for the International Monetary Fund. As an international organization, they don't withold Social Security and Medicare taxes from their American employees' payrolls. Instead, they pay those employees an extra 15% with the understanding that the money will go to self-employment tax and not to, whatever, Cristal and hookers.

This dummy Geithner did not pay his self-employment tax for four years because apparently his accountant said he didn't have to. (?!?)

So then when he got audited in 2006, he wound up having to pay back taxes for 2003 and 2004, which he paid. But a three-year statute of limitations prevented the IRS from auditing him for the years 2001 and 2002, which he also owed back taxes on. So what did he do, this nationally prominent government money guy who probably had some inkling that he might some day might want to be even more nationally prominent in the world of finance? He said, "Enh, all right, I'll just keep the change."

Not until he was being vetted by the Obama transition team did he finally decide to produce the remaining $26,000. This is why he is a lamer.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
