IRS Commish Visits Tax Cheat Rangel

Unfortunately he didn't come and frogmarch him off to jail. It certainly doesn't send a good message when the head honcho of the Internal Revenue Service shares a stage with a notorious tax cheat and slobbers all over him.

Rumor has it Douglas Shulman will be appearing later with Tim Geithner and Tom Daschle.
The IRS's top man came to Harlem - and shared a stage with an accused tax cheat, Rep. Charles Rangel.

Commissioner Douglas Shulman and other officials yesterday urged New Yorkers to get the most out of their tax returns.

Asked about appearing with a pol who's being probed for failing to pay taxes, Shulman said, "He's one of the leaders in this country on tax policy issues. I work closely with him every day, and I'm honored to be on this stage with him."
