Guess why U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is “embarrassed?”
She mistakenly failed to pay $287,000 in property taxes from 2007 to 2010. Oopsie! It was an accident, said the self -righteous senator from Missouri.
After she was caught, McCaskill admitted she didn’t pay the taxes on a private plane she co-owns with her husband and other investors. And that little embarrassment surfaced only after POLITICO discovered she billed taxpayers for $88,000 for 90 flights on her own plane. Only then, did she reimburse the U.S. Treasury. The article didn’t say whether she had to pay penalties and late fees as the rest of us would have if we paid our taxes late – or not at all.
You must watch the above video to understand the unabashed hypocrisy of this woman.
Bringing this outrage closer to home, Tuesday night, Wyoming Area Superintendent Ray Bernardi introduced budget cuts to avert a proposed 6.1% tax hike on property owners. He’s hoping 130 district custodians, secretaries and aides agree to a pay freeze, which would save the district $118,000, a little more than McCaskill pocketed in taxpayers’ money for trips on her own plane.
Bernardi also wants the district’s health trust consortium to give each of its member districts a one month break from paying premiums, considering it has a $15-million surplus (Hmmmmm). For Wyoming Area that would mean a savings of $230,000, Bernardi said.
You getting angry yet that Sen. McCaskill did not pay $287,000 in property taxes she owed?
Why wasn’t this all over the news? Probably because it wasn’t a Republican lawmaker who got caught sticking it to taxpayers, coupled with the fact that McCaskill is an ally of Barack Obama. And we all know how unbiased the mainstream media is, don’t we?
“I have discovered that the personal property taxes on the plane have not been paid,” she said. McCaskill discovered nothing. POLITICO did. The senator said she’s ”embarrassed” by it all. Well, ma’am, we’re disgusted by it all.
Now, this supreme diva said she is happy that she has convinced her husband to “sell the damn plane.”
What would make all United States taxpayers happy is if Missouri voters recall this “damn” crook. She is a disgrace. And her excuses are nauseating.
“There are people I could blame for this, but I know better. I take full responsibility,” said Sen. Hypocrite. Aren’t you great!
Throw her out, Missouri.
