Have you seen the front page of Fox News.com today?
They’re playing up this controversy involving David Scott like it’s the second coming of Christ. I mean just look at their headline…
“House Dem $tars in ‘All in the Family’
Mired in tax liens, Georgia Rep. David Scott used $500G from campaign to pay family ‘workers,’ paper reports”
When you read that it sounds like Congressman Scott is as crooked as a question mark, but I don’t believe he is. All I see is David Scott wanting to use his family to work on his campaigns and I don’t see anything wrong with that.
Regarding the tax liens against David Scott and his company, it just serves as further proof that our tax system is far too complicated and needs to be reformed. When you’ve got intelligent people such as David Scott’s wife making mistakes, you know something is seriously wrong.
This isn’t some big lobbying scandal such as the one involving Tom DeLay, Ralph Reed, and Jack Abramoff. This is just Republicans using petty politics to try and bring down a Congressman who has been re-elected overwhelmingly by his constituents three times.
