Listen – I consider it pretty ridiculous when there are 14 comments awaiting moderation and damn near every one of them are cut-n-paste from the Ralph Reed mailer concerning Cagle’s tax situation. Give me a break folks…
Secondly, a comment was posted that got a little to close to the personal/professional boundary. I removed them, mostly at the request of the person on the receiving end of the comment. Any problems, see me.
Finally, here’s the intro para from the Reed email:
Casey Cagle Chaired Senate Finance Committee, Oversaw Georgia Tax Laws, But Avoided Paying Payroll Taxes on His Own Employees
Monday, June 3, 2006
Casey Cagle chaired the powerful Senate Finance Committee and oversaw Georgia’s tax laws, but official state records show that Cagle did not pay the payroll taxes, including federal and Georgia income and FICA withholding taxes, on employees as the law required. Casey Cagle’s 2001-04 state Senate re-election campaigns and his Lt. Governor campaign paid $35,892.50 to individuals listed as campaign employees However, records show that withholding taxes on these employees were not paid.
The email contains plenty of footnotes and references. Give us a chance to dig through it.
