Deja Vu: More Legislators Fail To File Their Income Tax Returns

One would think that after all that hub-bub last year over lawmakers not filing their income tax returns, the 236 state representatives and senators under the gold dome might have learned something.

It seems, though, that our legislators have learned nothing.

. . . Georgia Revenue Commissioner Bart Graham mailed letters to more than a dozen lawmakers last Friday about why they did not file in 2009.

Under a new ethics law passed on the final day of last year's General Assembly, those lawmakers have 30 days to respond to Graham's letter.

At the end of that time, he will then hand over their names to the House and Senate Ethics Committees for possible disciplinary action.

As the old saying goes, it's the same story. . .just a different day.
