Deadbeat McCains Default On Calif. Tax Bill

They haven’t paid taxes in four years on their California condo--must be nice. Wish I had that deal. I wonder how long the city of Nashville would let me stay in my house if I didn’t pay the property taxes on it?

Huffington Post has the goods:
Newsweek is set to publish a highly embarrassing report on Sen. John McCain, revealing that the McCains have failed to pay taxes on their beach-front condo in La Jolla, California, for the last four years and are currently in default, The Huffington Post has learned.

Under California law, once a residential property is in default for five years, it can be sold at a tax sale to recover the unpaid taxes for the taxpayers.

The McCains own at least seven homes through a variety of trusts and corporations controlled by Cindy McCain.

Meanwhile, let's not forget McCain's tax-free disability pension. Taxes, schmaxes! They’re for the little people!

And this is the guy we’re supposed to trust with our economic policy? This is the guy who’s going to enforce fiscal discipline and end pork barrel spending? He can’t even keep his own financial house in order!


Cue the phony outrage over how Newsweek got tipped off to this story in 5 ... 4... 3...
