Gingrich Businesses Face Unpaid Taxes

ATLANTA (AP) -- Companies run by Republican presidential
candidate Newt Gingrich have faced overdue tax bills in four states
worth more than $6,000.

Records reviewed by The Associated Press show the tax liens
ranged from a $195 property tax bill in the Atlanta suburbs to
$1,969 in unpaid Missouri taxes. Most of the liens were paid
shortly after tax authorities filed them. Liens also had been filed
in Indiana.

One exception was in Pennsylvania, where Gingrich Holdings Inc.
last week paid off a $1,599 lien for unpaid corporate income taxes
just days before Gingrich formally announced his presidential run.

Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler said Gingrich and his firms were
unaware of the liens until recently. He said the companies have
either paid the bills or filed documents necessary to resolve the
underlying problems.

    So what? He is in good and plentiful company with those doing the same thing in Congress, Obama appointees, and Federal employees.

    Good for Newt! Just shows he's right in there with a number of the appointees of Obama, Democrats in Congress, as well as Federal employees. The way Obama is throwing money around without the approval of the American taxpayer and voter everyone should consider holding taxes back. I think we also need to change the laws concerning who can vote. Since those on the dole aren't harmed by Federal tax policies but those who work are, anyone receiving any type of dole should not be allowed to vote. That way there is one less means for politicians to buy votes with our tax money.
