It’s weird how tax cheats seem to always be Republicans, innit?
- The billionaire accused of running the biggest tax fraud scheme in U.S. history was a prolific donor to Republican groups and causes.
- The leaders of those organizations have kept quiet on the accusations against him.
- Robert Brockman, former CEO of Ohio-based software company Reynolds & Reynolds, was charged in October with running a $2 billion tax fraud scheme.
If you read the article, the name Paul Ryan shows up many times. Also weird, innit? So what’s the defense gonna be?
The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that Brockman and his legal team are claiming that the 79-year-old billionaire can’t be tried because he is suffering from dementia and is unable to take part in his own defense. Prosecutors reportedly responded that he could be faking it and that a hearing on Brockman’s competency is set to take place in June.
They should put a Benjamin on a string and pull it in front of him.
An attorney for Brockman did not respond to a request for comment.
I wouldn’t go on record either.
