    John Kerry just got caught evading Massachusetts luxury taxes on his 7million dollar yacht he bought a few years back. How fast you liberals forget scandals when they are on your side of the isle. Anyway, he had it built in New Zeland for some reason, instead of employing an American boat builder for starters. But the best part is how he avoided almost half a million dollars in sales and excise taxes by having the boat "birthed" in Rhode Island, even though he usually kept it at his Nantucket mansion. When this all came to light he was such a punk about it, practically yelling at any press who dared address the issue. He finally was forced to do the right thing, pay the taxes and birth the boat in MA. Here's a link for those in denial...

    He released his military records, and some were redacted due to the sensitivity of where he was, probably in Cambodia when our official position was that we weren't in Cambodia.

    Kerry released his tax records, as did Bush. Nothing there, and btw, there is nothing illegal about a tax haven. Or an offshore account as long as its all reported.

    Most of Kerry's wealth is his wife's, and they have, if I remember, been careful to keep things separate for tax reasons.

    Kerry was never an honest person. He is a has-been

    and we should care less about his accounts, business,

    or personal life. He would have been another dud in

    the White House.

    Yes, but he ran more on his war service than his business record. The democrats learned pretty well from the lying, yet effective swiftboat ads. Now no political ad is even slightly honest. It's top notch marketing, though.

    Kerry's extended wealth comes from his second wife. He can place -or maintain- assets in her name and not report such.

    No, and he released more than one years tax return

    More and all of his wife's money is made into furniture so they can sit or sleep on it.
