Joe the Plumber

Posted by karmalily on October 30, 2008

I know everyone is tired of hearing about “Joe the Plumber.” John McCain is to “Joe the Plumber” as Rudy Guiliani is to 9/11. Enough already. McCain and his campaign should be especially weary of repeating his “Joe” mantra since he owes $1200 in taxes and admitted that Obama’s plan would actually benefit him.From CBS News (and yes, I know the article is from the 16th. I admittedly missed this):

So today, Joe, who said he makes much less than $250,000, reluctantly admitted Obama would lower his taxes.

“I would, if you believe him, I would be receiving his tax cuts,” Wurzelbacker said….

But Joe’s anti-tax leanings are also playing out in his personal life. It turns out – he’s behind on state taxes.

So the man whose personal story steered a Presidential debate over taxes owes some $1,200 in back taxes, according to the state of Ohio.

Sounds to me like the McCain campaign should have done a bit more research on their precious Joe before falling in love with him.
