So, Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill has admitted she failed to pay about $287,000 in back taxes. Well good for her. Now she needs to resign her seat and pay her debt.
I don’t care why she didn’t pay her taxes; fact is she didn’t pay them. This is one of those “high crimes or misdemeanors” that would warrant an impeachment, and if she doesn’t step down then the House needs to proceed and remove her from office. If the GOTP leadership lacks the courage to pursue an impeachment, then voters in 2012 need to send her packing. Citizens can’t get away with this kind of nonsense, and neither should members of Congress.
