Put Fresen In Jail ... by gimleteye

The Miami Herald reports the incredible story of Erik Fresen, the Miami state legislator who failed to pay any income taxes while taking a paycheck from his in-laws' private charter school business and doing the heavy lifting for special interests like expanded casino gambling in Florida. What kind of arrogance fueled this behavior is a question better answered by Miami voters who supported Fresen. Eye On Miami hopes the judge throws the full book at him.

"For eight years, Erik Fresen served in the Florida House of Representatives, leaving office last November because of term limits. During all eight of those years, Fresen never filed a federal income tax return. Fresen, a Miami Republican, pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to failing to file a tax return for 2011, a year in which he received $270,136 in income he didn’t report to Uncle Sam."

Read, here, Eye On Miami's blog history on Fresen. Can't say, we didn't try!

Jesus. What an arrogant a-hole. Throw his pretty a$$ in jail for this. Enough is enough corrupt Miami.

I wonder why a politician would want to hide income and it's sources?
Get ready for another dreaded letter of instruction. What a disgrace.

Just a reminder for the Miami Herald Editorial Board not to endorse people with a history of shabby ethics.
