Former comedian and Air America Radio host and current Senate candidate Al Franken has paid $70,000 in back taxes that he owed to seventeen - count 'em, 17 - states across the U.S. It was all his accountant's doing! Of course, that accountant had been doing his taxes for 18 years and he couldn't be reached for comment... because he was under a bus, or something. Per Stuart, he paid more in NY and MN and less in other states due to "his accountant"
"Franni and I have paid state and federal taxes on every cent of our income... Franni and I believe in paying state and federal taxes on all our income."
And, I'm sure he does and this was just an "accounting error".
