    Tom Daschle: "Tax Cheaters Cheat Us All"

    02/04/2009

    The Washington Times gets in one-last parting shot to disgraced cabinet-nominee Tom Daschle with a steaming bucket of irony:

    If Tom Daschle had his way, Tom Daschle would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for failing to pay his taxes.

    At least according to the old Tom Daschle, who gave an impassioned speech on the Senate floor about the scourge of tax scofflaws.

    "Make no mistake, tax cheaters cheat us all, and the IRS should enforce our laws to the letter," the former Senate Majority Leader said in 1998 during a debate on a bill reforming the Internal Revenue Service.

    The debate footage is a must-see.  The article also links to a particularly great campaign ad from back in the day.
