Protein Wisdom notes that Al Franken's tax problems keep --er-- compounding.
Democratic Senate candidate Al Franken’s personal corporation didn’t file corporate income tax returns in California from 2003 to 2007. He now owes more than $4,000 in back taxes, penalties and fees. Franken campaign spokeswoman Jess McIntosh said if Franken’s business owes the money it will pay up, which is nice, given that it is illegal to not file or pay corporate taxes.
The AP adds:
Franken looks like he's been working out.AFI was in the headlines in recent weeks after it emerged that New York state had fined Franken $25,000 for failure to pay workers’ compensation insurance while employing people from 2002 to 2005. Franken paid the penalty and an $833 fine for failing to pay disability insurance.
Franken's a joke, but federal authorities aren't laughing.
