Liberal corruption is something that is rarely reported int he mainstream media. For whatever reason, they think it’s a good idea to hide everything. However, there are some stories that need to be revealed no matter what.
A high-ranking Democrats’ chief of staff was caught falsifying a security clearance form, and as a result, is facing up to five years behind bars. Issac Lanier Avant, the chief of staff for Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), didn’t disclose on a security form that he didn’t pay income taxes, which is a big lie.
The announcement came Wednesday by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. Of course, not paying your taxes is a crime, and they need to pay for not doing so in the first place. However, this is going to hurt the Democrats more than anything.
As it turns out, Thompson is the highest-ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Homeland Security. As it turns out, Avant had to complete a form for this position, and evidently failed to do so.
The Justice Department gave a press release back in January about his failure to pay taxes.
“Despite earning more than $ 165,000, Avant failed to timely file his 2009 through 2013 individual income tax returns, causing a tax loss of $ 153,522. Avant had no federal income withheld during those years because in May 2005, he caused a form to be filed with his employer that falsely claimed he was exempt from federal income taxes,” they said.
Due to that, Avant was sentenced to 30 days in prison, and forced to incarceration every weekend, and ordered to pay restitution of nearly $ 150,000 from his taxes.
However, there are still some unanswered questions that need to be addressed. For one thing, Thompson’s office never said if Avant is still employed by the member of Congress. For another thing, there isn’t an end date on Legistorm, which happens to be a congressional tracking website.
It would be an absolute travesty if the Congressman was still employing the chief of staff. However, that is the Democrats for you.
