David Cole, Chairman of the Missouri Republican Party issued the following statement regarding revelations that Claire McCaskill failed to pay nearly $300,000 in personal property taxes on her private plane:
“In the past two weeks, we have learned that Claire McCaskill billed taxpayers for political travel and failed to pay nearly $300,000 in personal property taxes on her plane. Over the last four years, cash-strapped school districts and the children in these schools have been deprived of these much-need funds because McCaskill avoided paying taxes by hiding her assets with a Delaware shell company. These actions are unacceptable evasions of the law by McCaskill, who brags about her background as an auditor, lawyer, and self-described government watchdog. And it begs the question: what else is hidden in the nearly 300 LLCs, LPs, and shell companies that McCaskill has listed on her personal financial disclosure? McCaskill herself said it best back in 2006, ‘if my walk doesn’t match my talk, then shame on me and don’t ever vote for me again.’”
