Discredited reporter owes back taxes
http://www.delawareonline.com/newsjournal/local/2005/02/12discreditedrepo.html

Ex-Delawarean didn't pay $20,700 over three years

<snip>

"The former Wilmington resident who gained notoriety asking softball questions at White House press conferences has an outstanding tax bill from the state of Delaware.

James D. Guckert, who reported under the pseudonym Jeff Gannon, failed to pay Delaware more than $20,700 in personal state income tax from 1991 through 1994, according to documents filed in Superior Court in Wilmington.

State Division of Revenue Director Patrick Carter said the assessment has not yet been satisfied.

"When it rains, it pours," Guckert said Friday from his Washington home. He would not comment further.

According to court records, Guckert owed $9,484 in taxes; $7,697.69 in fines and $3,560.71 in interest."

Just wait until the investigation, Jimmy.

4. Don't worry...
the White House will pay those taxes for him or else see that the debt is erased. After all...he is Bush's "softball" guy.

22. The rest of the media whores better pay attention. They comply to get by
but they too will be ground under the heel of the Rovian boot. What gutless fools and lazy traitors they are.

8. Guckert needs to tell everyone that he's NOT DEPRESSED
He needs to plan and put a down payment on a vacation, buy a bunch of new clothes, set up a lot of dinner dates, participate actively in a church volunteer project--basically do all the stuff that one DOESN'T DO when one is about to commit suicide. And he needs to start singing like a bird, immediately, to REAL journalists.

Because it's looking grimmer and grimmer for him every day. And despite his being a sleazeball, I actually do care about what happens to him.

13. that's a LOT of STATE taxes....Federal taxes are usually the MOST
Edited on Sat Feb-12-05 12:29 PM by diamond14
with State taxes a paltry second place....


wonder what $ 9,484 in Delaware State taxes translates to as INCOME....in Virginia, for each year, it'd be about $60,000 TAXABLE income...where's this money coming from....who is paying 'gannon'??


'gannon' told NPR that he has NEVER made any money from his writings, so one wonders WHERE HE GETS HIS MONEY.....

MAYBE...income from his gay-military-sex pimping operation...

his REGISTERED websites should raise a few eyebrows as to his REAL income:
HotMilitaryStud.com
MilitaryEscorts.com
MilitaryEscortsM4M.com.

for a few other people as well. I am just waiting for the day when the rest of these m-fers get theirs. What a glorious day that will be.

16. I'd gladly donate to his tax fund - if he would spill his guts on who set
him up as the "press" insider at the White House.

You better tell 100 attorneys your entire story and that you are of sound mind and body, or else you'll need to change your name again to "Patsy."
