By the way...padding mileage v. Tax evasion and SS fraud? Nice stretch.
Padding mileage stole money from the Erie County taxpayers. The tax evasion charges are trumped up by the IRS targeting Beeman for his political views. Critical thinking skills makes me ask how can a retired GE worker owe over 2.1 million in taxes. No one was hurt by the SS fraud and no one lost any money. This charge was only pursued by the DA to get Beeman removed from office.

No one is hurt by another refusing to pay their taxes? You really believe that that the IRS cares about the political views of 1 ineffective "politician" on a county council in Erie county? Hope you have your tin foil hat on! I'm not excusing what you are claiming Giles has done. If he did, it is inexcusable. Call him out, provide the proof, and push to have him removed and/or charged. I have no problem with that if he truly did something wrong. But again dismissing tax evasion and SS fraud as "victimless" crimes is a joke.

There are more then a few Ge workers who thru saving money investing into stock & the 401 K plan have a nest egg in excess of 1,000,000.
Not the ones who blow every dime they get but those who planned for the future.
When you refuse to pay Federal taxes for a number of years,the penalties & interest adds up very quickly.Beeman was a fool.....It is true a fool & his money are soon parted.
As for no one was hurt by Beeman`s actions....It was our tax monies he played games with, no one is above the law & he deserved the punishment he received.

That is your characterization of a liberal, which is totally off base. I am a liberal, and being a liberal does not mean I "care" for everyone, just that I believe that everyone should be treated equally under our law (if they are a citizen), that everyone should be expected to adhere to our laws, and when laws are broken, everyone should be equally held accountable to the punishments our laws require. This includes people such as Beeman who knew the laws regarding requirements to drive and our tax laws. If he chose to ignore them, he should be punished. Period. Equal protection, equal expectations, equal consequences for your actions.
Equal treatment of all is a Republican principle that is despised by all liberals. Either you are mislabeling yourself as a liberal or you don't know the definition of a liberal

Maybe you confuse Republican as being the true Americans. One party does not own a principle or thought...just like the Republican Party does not own Jesus. They just think they do.

No confusion here. The democrats pick winners and losers. IE;Giving Solyndra and other solar energy companies tons of tax dollare and an edge over other energy companies. Obama taking trayvon martins side without the facts. Backing the muslim brotherhood over peaceful groups in Egypt. The fact is that you can't show us a single incident where the democrats haven't chosen to support one group over giving everyone a fair chance. You also can not show us and example of when the democrats didn't ultimately choose the wrong group to favor.

You have to realize you are talking to a simple minded dummy lever pulling democrap. The clown would not know reality if it bit his brain filled ass.
