Corker and Taxes - "Raise 'Em But Don't Pay 'Em"

It's amazing what you can find when you Google someone. Take GOP Senate wannabe Bob Corker. Google Bob The Builder and here's some of what you will find:

- when Corker was elected Mayor of Chattanooga he raised property taxes (Chattanooga News Free Press 8/22/01)
- that same year (the year he raised taxes and cut many positions in city government) he also raised his own salary as Mayor from $118,796 to $122,360 (Chattanooga News Free Press 7/17/01)

and then there's my personal favorite...
- successful builder/developer/millionaire biz man Bob Corker did not pay ANY taxes in 1985 and 1989 because he reported NO taxable income (Commercial Appeal 6/23/04)...hmm...

dude ought to have his own testimonial infomercial..."Hi, my name is Bob Corker, and thanks to clever accounting I'm a millionaire, who became a Mayor, who gave myself a pay raise while raising other people's taxes, but managed not to pay my own. And you can too. Call now for my BE A MILLIONAIRE BUT PAY NO TAXES accounting kit, which comes with a complimentary I RAISED TAXES BUT DIDN'T PAY 'EM bumper sticker!"
