I don't even know what to say. I hope works out if Helio is found not guilty. I hope he'll be able to get his life back.

When the Federal boys come after you its usually bad. They usually have a good case to go that far.
Looks like his sister an attorney is in the mix

Helio won't have to worry. The Government is about to set it up for all tax evaders to get off scott free if they appoint Geithner to oversee our IRS. Kind of can't enforce laws on 1 set of people and yet reward others that do the same thing.

Mardeth won't like that at all!

Does that mean I have to put up with her Paul Tracy!? I really don't want to!

If Helio is not guilty, who will give him a ride!?

Is he the crook that did not pay his own taxes? If so they need to lock him up instead of giving him a job.....I pay and pay and it honks me off when the rich don't pay and get away with it.

Yes Ma'am. He sure is. I'm with you 100%. If it was you or I we sure wouldn't be offered a job running the same department that we just ripped off. We would be locked up and the key thrown away.

Talk about old news. Will Power will be in Helios car when needed only.

[The way I look at it is we have three drivers. We'll determine who drives which one of those two cars depending on how everything sorts out."]

He's Far from dumped!
