* Speaking of Grimm and Rangel, at THE HILL Ben Kamisar reminds Grimm of his comments about Chuck back in 2010 in “Grimm in2010: Tax Cheating 'Unforgivable’” –
“At best Mr. Rangel has proven himself to be incompetent of administrating the tax code and at worse, he was cheating on his taxes. Either way his actions are unforgivable.”
Grimm also said at the time -
"Americans deserve better from their elected officials. Ethics are not a political issue; either you have them or you don’t.”
Obviously Grimm "don't".
Another Congressional example of “Do as I say, not as I do.”
BTW - the item tells us -
"Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) said Tuesday that he won’t resign after pleading guilty to tax fraud."
* A holiday rerun from Jason Dinesen deals with a still current issue for taxpayers with "unrented" property - "From the Archives: Tax Court: Vacant House Can Still Qualify as Rental" -
"The U.S. Tax Court ruled . . . that a rental home that sits vacant for an extended period can still be considered a rental property."
