Rahm Emanuel Pays Property Taxes After Inquiry - WBBM 780 - Chicago's #1 source for local news, traffic and weather

Strange how so many of these democrats fail to remember to pay their taxes or fail to pay them on time?

One wonders if being a democrat means this disease is catching.

Quote(Steve Miller Reporting
CHICAGO (WBBM) -- White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel was three months behind on his property tax payments until Newsradio 780 brought it to his attention.. SEE THE TAX BILL FROM TREASURER'S WEBSITE

Rahm Emanuel and his wife accumulated a $445.56 penalty for the payment delay on their four-bedroom Ravenswood home. On March 2, when property taxes were due, Emanuel owed about $7400.

The White House responded to Newsradio 780's inquiry and issued this statement, "Rahm Emanuel has owned his home in Chicago for 11 years and has always paid his obligations promptly. He never received this particular bill, but today, the moment it was brought to his attention, he paid it in-full immediately."

Of course he did!

I'm gonna give this one a /Pass. **** happens, it wasn't much, and he paid it without balking. Ten bucks says he wrote the check and forgot to mail it.

They're all for taxing, they're just not for paying.

The guy paid his taxes on time every year that he lived in IL. Now that he lives in DC, he was three months late. I think we can safely say it's more of a "oh **** my bad" than a "muahahah my master plan to defraud IL out of $7400 will never be detected!"

You right wingers always stick together...

Actually, I am probably more upset about this than you two. If you got a job in the government, you have to make sure you get these things done right. You simply do not want to give your opposition the ammunition. It probably was not intentional, but it was stupid.

So, let me get this straight... Someone brings an outstanding tax bill (3 Mos.) to the WH Chief of Staff's attention, he pays it + penalties immediately.

Good golly, Miss Molly... you far-righties are really scraping.

Be sure to let us know if thank you notes for birthday presents come late...
