There are people I could blame for this. But I know better. As an auditor, I know that I shouldve checked for myself. I take full responsibility for the mistake," Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) said on a conference call.
I have convinced my husband to sell the damned plane, McCaskill said.
Today, Sen. McCaskill admitted that she failed to pay nearly $287,000 in back taxes on the usage of a private plane.

Disgusting. Where’s the IRS? They hounded us for a check that we sent on time and they lost. Even though we got proof of it being deposited by the IRS, they still bugged us for months.
just pay the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ mccaskill and get in line for security like the rest of us do! Stop your bellyaching about asking your husband to sell the damned plane. It isn’t the plane’s fault so why would yous say: “Damned plane” anyway? Got caught...eh?????
Then go to jail like any one of your constituents would and double the time for knowing better!
Donks do not pay taxes unless they are caught red handed not paying taxes.
It is never their fault - they are never fined or imprisoned
You do not mind a tax increase if you do not pay them at all
I take her at her word on this.
I doubt seriously that it will make a difference in the campaign. The state senate campaign will be all about McCaskill’s voting record and her ability to represent what is basically a center/right state.
What does she mean about taking full responsibility? If there are no consequences, this is meaningless. She got caught, that’s all.
Two sets of rules: One for the government and one for the people who pay for the government.
Second Axiom of Liberalism:
Liberals take "full responsibility" only when there are no consequences.
Bill Clinton, you'll recall, was especially good at taking "full responsibility"...and avoiding "consequences".
I'm sure you also recall...
First Axiom of Liberalism:
Liberals are never at fault. Ever.
This senator, along with John Kerry, Charles Rangel and every other elected tax cheat should be rotting away in prison. None of them have ANY excuse for skipping on taxes.
They sent Wesley Snipes to jail for the same thing.
While Delaware has no personal property tax, McCaskill has told anyone who will listen that she wasnt trying to dodge paying taxes on the plane, which Aircraft Bluebook says is valued at $2.2 million.
This information is from The Politico.
What is 5 years of penalties and interest on $287,000?
“What is 5 years of penalties and interest on $287,000?”
3-5 years prison time.
Haven’t we had enough of these “lawmakers” breaking the law and not having any accountability? SEND HER TO PRISON!
And stripped Red Foxx naked, literally...for the same thing.
Tell ya what Senator..sell the plane. Nothing wrong with that, except, you are still liable for the taxes. Plus you will be liable for any capital gains to boot!
How obviously self-contradictory, self-congratulatory, false and blame-shifting can you get. And all within one breath.
Response: Then they wonder why the hatred against politicians is growing to monstrous proportions. They are even starting to carry guns as they fear people so much.
Comment: We ought to prepare and send a petition to the IRS with a courtesy copy(cc) to this vermin. Demand the IRS impose penalties, interest, costs even a trial both civil and criminal. Foul Vermin!
Maybe this time my vote will count and not be canceled out by dead people in st louis. St louis makes Venezuela look honest.
The LLC owes the money no her, the LLC will sell the plane then be dissolved, the Tax will never be payed and The owner will not be liable.
She also said she was disappointed in herself for not ensuring the property taxes were paid.
Another shabby trick. "This is not the Claire McCaskell I know. I'm very disappointed in her" said Senator McCaskell.
“Maybe this time my vote will count and not be canceled out by dead people in st louis.”
That is limited areas in the CITY of St. Louis, not the entire metropolitan aea.
Oh, and the same $hit goes down in Kansas City, as well as most major urban areas.
Hey Claire, take some advice from Sarah....try Ebay!!!
Old bitch got caught, joy riding on the tax payers dime.
I saw her with it a couple of years ago in Mexico, MO... she was picking up Senator Bond for a return flight to Washington...
She was damn proud of it that evening... it got stuck in the mud as her pilots had turned a bit sharp and got it stuck in the grass.
Her comment to the workers that got it unstuck was, “you can afford something like this if you work all of the time!”.
Glad she got her soft parts stuck in a wringer!
Don’t forget it was Claire who came up with SR 511 making McCain eligible and including the clause that “others once thought not eligible in fact were” (to help Obama) while not vetting Obama at all. By voting for SR 511 both parties were willing to violate the Constitution to make their candidate eligible.
In spite of what Huckabee said, Hillary had enough delegates to sew up the nomination so she did not expose Obama in Jan. 2008. After the Mar. 12, 2008 secret meeting of Congress, Dean forced Hillary’s delegates to switch to Obama at the Convention. They are all traitors.
