Rahm Emmanuel's Questionable Tax Issues

Mr Emmanuel, Chief of Staff for the President of the United States received the equivalent of $100,000 in free rent from a man whose company did polling for the Obama administration. Allegedly he never claimed that income and therefore never paid taxes on it.

Tim Geithner, proven tax cheat, now has the IRS in his control. Ya think he'll send a few agents over to Rahm's house to look into this? Uh, no. Maybe President Obama will insist on it? Uh, no.

By the way, Rahm was getting paid $262,000 a year to sit on Freddie Mac's board during 2000 to 2001, the fraud years, when Freddie Mac was backing insanely thinly backed mortgages that are now going bust and have sent this economy into its current tailspin.

Then there's the $16 million Rahm earned between his director's job and running for Congress...

Blogs and other honest journalists are going to have to flog this for weeks before it ever hits the press since Emmanuel doesn't have a Senate confirmation hearing coming up.

Did you ever believe that one political candidate could promise so much integrity and deliver so little?

This is unbelievable...or is it? You should start a contest asking people to predict how long it will take one of the 3 old TV networks to be first to report this news about Rahm.

Well nothing as of this afternoon on the subject from any MSM outlets that I know of.

The Teflon Prez and his gang of slimy cohorts covered again by their pals in the media.
