No 2009 Taxes From Some Lawmakers

Taxes for thee but not for me:
Some state legislators failed to file their 2009 income taxes.

Georgia Revenue Commissioner Bart Graham mailed letters last Friday to an undisclosed number of lawmakers.

Under a new ethics law passed on the final day of last year's General Assembly, the lawmakers have 30 days to respond to Graham's letter.

After that deadline Graham will give the names to the House and Senate Ethics Committees for possible disciplinary action.

The names will be released if formal charges are brought.

Heck, release their names now; voters should be informed.

(Oh, and if anyone knows any of those lawmakers who need a good CPA to get them current, send 'em my way.)
