Tea party leader/insane clown also major tax delinquent, apparently

13 05 2009

Well no wonder he doesn’t like taxes very much. According to documents obtained by Teablogging by running a goddamned simple Nexis search on the internets, national Tea Party organizer, Top Conservatives on Twitter cofounder and TCOTReport.com publisher Michael P. Leahy has, over the past 16 years, amassed nearly $150,000 in state and federal tax liens, small claims court judgments and civil suits.

It’s an open secret among teabaggers and elsewhere that Leahy is a delusional, profiteering creep and, potentially, a member of some alien race of Lizard People here to feed on the human race, for freedom. You might have heard of Leahy during the Great TCOT Civil War hilarious catfight of 2009, when he basically threw a bitch fit on the internet because TCOT cofounder and reasonable adult Rob Neppell wouldn’t let him be the supreme boss of everything which was, like, TOTALLY UNFAIR. You will find that this is something of a recurring theme with Leahy.

So anyway, megalomaniac? Check. Self-defeating hack? Check. Lizard Person? Definitely check. And now, yes, apparently tax negligence? Check and check.

Seriously, does Leahy have naked pictures of other teaparty leaders that they continue to associate with this no-talent fartsack? Actually, no, please don’t answer that.

Whatever. If this slapstick band of unintentionally hilarious fuckups wants to join Leahy in committing collective suicide in front of everybody, live, on the internet, they can go right on ahead. I just wouldn’t lend him any money.

Take a look at our source docs here (pdf)

*In an uncharacteristic act of actual journalism, Teablogging.net contacted Mr. Leahy prior to the publication of this post. He thanked us for the heads up (and chided us for using dirty words) but didn’t offer any further comment. Boo-yah.

Classic! Hypothetical taxpayers should only attend hypothetical protests …

I dunno. As much as I think the Tea Party people are short-sighted, selfish and wrong, I think this kind of illustrates that in regards to taxes, this guy is putting his money where his mouth is.

I’m sure he sees himself as a hero. I kind of do, even if I don’t agree with him.

How does this turd think we pay for body armor and bullets.

Oh yeah Republicans don’t think its patriotic to pay your taxes during a war.

Treasonous Slime.

Scratch a libertarian wound a Racist – I’m sure Mr. Leahy would tell you that the government wouldn’t need his tax money if they cut out the “waste” which is the new codespeak for a black president giving all our money to gang bangers to get high.

Funny how noone seemed worried about government “waste” when Republicans controlled all three branches of government for 3 years.

Let’s keep after these hypocrites. If I seem to have been strangely silent on this issue it is because some of my favorite targets have been strangely silent as well. When they rear their ugly heads again I’m gonna hammer ’em right back down.

14 05 2009

I linked to this story from the Huffington Post website thinking it would be a serious piece of journalism against this type of hypocrisy. Instead, I found a juvenile rant filled with obscenities that only served to weaken any of the actual facts of the story.

14 05 2009

Oh hell no he’s not. Real tax protesting encompasses cutting yourself off from society and becoming self-sufficient, not sticking around and gathering the benefits while not paying your share.

This man is nothing more than a lazy, irresponsible piece of shit. And how much do you want to bet that he rallies against all those “welfare cheats” living off the government?

14 05 2009

Oh Christ, lighten up. It’s supposed to be a half humorous, half serious look at this “Tea Party” phenomenon. The facts aren’t dependent upon how many obscenities are uttered in a particular paragraph. The man’s still a tax cheat.

And besides, look at this… “movement”. It’s pathetic. It deserves to be laughed at and mocked.

This is just, say, ironic and hilarious. But as my mom used to say, “never kick a man he’s down.” Unfortunately, in this case, I have to say (I’m sorry mom) that she was so wrong. 🙂

What’s hilarious is the fraudulant reporting in this story. He’s a billionaire who’s amassed $150k in liens/judgements. Big deal…most billionaires have along the way. They’re CIVIL judgements…and NOT back taxes. I want someone to provide actual evidence that he owes outstanding back taxes. Because none have been provided. The 15 liens/judgments are from PA, NY and TN. All 15 are civil judgments – no back taxes mentioned. They range from about $450 to $18,000.

This is nothing more than a pathetic attempt by the Obama apologists to try and silence people who are exercising their First Amendment rights. Not surprising that you’d put out a bunch of blatantly false accusations to try and smear this guy.

14 05 2009

What Obama “apologists” do you refer to? There is no such group as no apology is needed. On the other hand, you must belong to the Republican refuse-to-apologist gang.

And I don’t care WHAT he owes $$ for—He’s a rich b—–d who owes money and doesn’t pay. And what would his excuse be hmmm?
he wouldn’t have food to eat, or he might not be able to pay his mortgage if he paid those bills? Or maybe he’s just ‘special’ and doesn’t have to pay, like the rest of the peons right?

And you defend him…….lol.

14 05 2009

The sanme way most of the Obama’s cabinet members.I’ve always said there is no difference from either party.just dumb people who walk the party line.

14 05 2009

Oh, but it’s ok nObama and his lovely appointees don’t pay taxes?? What’s more insane is how the lefties stand up for nObama and his zombie thieves.

15 05 2009

Oh, then I suppose you’re volunteering to go over the Obamas’ and Bidens’ tax returns from this past year line by line, then ask the IRS for proof that they paid the full amounts listed as due? Or all of his nominees who have in the past had and resolved tax liens and miscalculations in the range of a few thousand dollars? Or Mr. Leahy’s returns, tax records, and outright refusal to pay more than a hundred thousand dollars in taxes in protest to the whole idea of taxation?

Here’s an example: a governor doesn’t make capital punishment legal by beginning to execute prisoners he thinks should have been given the death sentence. However much you dislike taxation, you don’t get it overturned by not paying your taxes. And yes, before anyone asks, I do pay my own taxes, I calculate MY OWN taxes, and I paid just over $140 each in federal and Arizona state income taxes this year, and I have the records and would be more than glad to let whoever would like to recheck my work, and try to call me out for cheating on my taxes, do so.

15 05 2009

That’s a pretty big word for you. Obviously, you don’t know what “communism” means. You are sad.

15 05 2009

you do watch TV don’t you? How many democrats have been caught not paying their taxes? the head of the IRS didn’t pay his taxes but he wants to make sure that we all did….even with all of the “waste” we wont talk about the two natural disasters, more aids relief to africa then any other president or the two wars that were funded, the debt has already been tripled. When Obama says he is going to cut the debt in half, he just be getting it back to what the democratic congress approved the last two times through.

15 05 2009

are you gonna start hammerin with the Speaker or the head of treasury?

15 05 2009

i don’t know but wasn’t geither about 35000 and the other guy who had the car for a couple of years was over 100000 doesn’t sound like a couple thousand to me. Also none of them were going to pay until they got nominated for posts and had to pay. So don’t jump up and down like timmy was on the phone with the IRS saying I think that Turbo Tax was wrong and I made a mistake. I’ll check your taxes if really want me to

maybe he just forgot to pay, works for the cabinet members huh?

No, he’s a lawbreaker shirking on his patriotic responsibilities. You know, after the Boston Tea Party, the Massachusetts Bay Colony offered to pay reparations for the acts of its citizens because vandalism isn’t civil disobedience, it’s a crime.

It was actually the Intolerable Acts drawn up by the British Parliament that fomented the Revolution as well as Lord North’s refusal to accept the reparations. This was the political act, not the Tea Party that set our country down the road.

So at best —- unprincipled and a pussy in my book.
