As if the tawdry details of the Client 9 negotiations weren’t enough, and a profile this morning in the NYT that makes Gov. Putzer sound clinically grandiose, it also seems that Idiot Spitzer forgot what every lawyer is taught before graduating from law school– the tax man will always get their man, no matter what, because there are unpaid tax monies at issue. As my tax prof said: “it doesn’t matter if you declare yourself an axe murderer for occupation–just declare all your income, from whatever source derived.”
It’s not so much shocking for the moral and ethical issues at stake, as it is shockingly stupid, from someone well-able to know and do better, but who persists with an arrogant not-me sense of entitlement. Unfortunately, jackasses come in a party affiliations.
