The candidate lambasted Americans who don't pay income taxes…in front of an audience that included one businessman who'd gone to jail for evading them.

The Obama Tax Cheats

A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama's executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven't paid any share, let alone their fair share.

4,697 Homeland Security employees collectively owe around $37 million. What’s worse is that 1,181 TREASURY DEPARTMENT workers – the people in the IRS – owe $9.3 million!

Clearly, Attorney General Eric Holder doesn’t care about the tax cheats who work for him. The IRS report says 2,069 employees of his Department of Justice owe more than $17 million. That’s our money!

Don't you see the irony of Romney mentioning the "47%" while a tax fraud is sitting in the audience? That's why I posted the article.

Mitt Romney’s Tax Dodge A guide to how the multimillionaire twists the law to hide his massive fortune - and avoid paying his fair share in taxes

See link for entire article, below a segment from above link....

>"Romney disclosed that his wife Ann's trust held $3 million in a Swiss bank account at UBS, which had just been busted by the IRS for abetting criminal tax evasion by U.S. citizens. As part of a $780 million settlement, UBS was forced to turn over the names of thousands of its long-secret clients, who were then offered a partial amnesty: disclose their hidden assets, pay penalties and avoid prosecution. Romney – who had omitted the Swiss account on previous financial disclosures – suddenly came clean. Did he reveal his secret account to avoid prosecution for tax evasion? "He's not quite denied that," says Daniel Shaviro, a professor of tax law at NYU. The record of paying an IRS penalty on the Swiss account could explain why Romney has been so determined to keep his 2009 tax return under wraps."<
