The Ivory Tower reports this morning that Michigan's very own Governor Jennifer Granholm has landed smack dab on the Obama administration's short list of potential nominees to fill outgoing Justice David Souter's seat on the United States Supreme Court.
Others on the list: California Supreme Court Justice Carlos Moreno, Solicitor General Elena Kagan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Appeals Court judges Sonia Sotomayor, Diane Pamela Wood and former Deputy Attorney General James Comey.
The Detroit Free Press reported that an $800 lien was "placed against the Wayne County home of Granholm and her husband in 2006 for failing to file unemployment insurance reports on their nanny."
But that was only the start of the Governor's difficulties with the tax man. Last year the Internal Revenue Service came calling on Jennifer Granholm in an attempt to collect nearly $20,000 in taxes she'd failed to pay on an inaugural committee, dating all the way back to 2003. To show they were serious they brought a nearly $20,000 tax lien with them. FULL STORY.
MI Governor Granholm Has Upper Hand On SCOTUS - Tax Problems!
Yup, just might be another in a string of Obama administration nominees with tax issues. It's almost a badge of honor with nominees at this point. FULL STORY.
Could tax questions scuttle U.S. Supreme Court nomination for Granholm?
The U.S. Department of Treasury has placed a federal tax lien on the committee to the tune of $19,535 in unpaid taxes that date back to 2003.
That would have been Granholm’s 2002 inaugural committee. Some of the events happened in early 2003. FULL STORY.
MY COMMIT: So what we have here once again, is the Democrats who keep telling us we must pay our fair share so they can live an above average life style while we scrape to put food on the table.
But as we have seen in Obama's administration, LYING on a tax return is no big deal for such a GOOD CATHOLIC like Granholm. In my opinion, the CHURCH should have excommunicated Granholm for her CHOICE to run for office on a Pro Abortion, Pro Homosexual platform along with all the other GOOD CATHOLICS in name only. But then that would publicly admit that the Catholic Church has been taken over by Socialist Communists, wouldn't it.
