Why should Helio have to go on trial when Obama's Cabinet picks get off? And how many other of our people in Washington do the same thing/

I believe Helio and everyone else involved in tax evasion or "incorrect" filings should be given the same treatment as the myriad of politicians who've been caught in the same scandal. Slap on the wrist, pay the tax and penalty and get on with your tax producing and paying life.

It is criminal to force him into court and drag him across the charred ashes of the IRS code when Senators, Congressmen and politicians at all levels are excused time and time again. "Pay the tax Helio, then run for the Senate."

He is rich, and like most rich people, he is a crook
While the little guy pays his taxes to support our country, they try to rob it, and doing a pretty good job of it

Mr. Castroneves has been selected to the director of Motor sports and all back taxes have been paid in full, just like the rest of my tax evading appointments.

Helio I hope that you are innocent of these charges but if not I'm sorry you felt you could abuse your rights as a guest in our country and you need to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Obama's cabinet should provide some formidable competition at the White collar prison golf course, at last count you should have 3 foursomes.

You have a typical Obama mindset.
