image for Senator Daschle Forgets To File Taxes Also
Nearly half of senators, congressmen forgot to do taxes.

Republican and Democratic senators on Sunday questioned how former Senator Tom Daschle could make a $128,203 mistake on his taxes but said they were not prepared to oppose his nomination as health secretary.

"You have to be troubled by it, but apparently half the people in the Congress and Senate have forgotten their taxes also." said Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate.

"We'll have to question former Senator Daschle and understand his explanation, and then have a conversation about it and see where it goes one of these days," Kyl said on "Fox News Sunday."

As to how much trouble the tax issue could present for the nomination, he said, "I think it's too early to tell. He's way down the line on the list of over 100 senators & congressmen."

Daschle recently filed amended tax returns to report $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest from 1989 through 2007. The amended returns reflect additional income for consulting work, the use of a car service and reduced deductions for charitable contribution (His run for the Senate).

Meanwhile Al Capone's grave has caved in two feet from all the turning.
