Republican Congressman Roundly Mocks IRS’s “Lost Emails” Excuse

(Submitted by jw via Stockman.House.Gov [High Praise!])

Republican Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas introduced a bill. I’ve lifted the following description from the Congressman’s site:


Under Stockman’s bill, “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act,” taxpayers who do not provide documents requested by the IRS can claim one of the following reasons:

1. The dog ate my tax receipts
2. Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3. Traded documents for five terrorists
4. Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5. Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6. Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7. Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8. Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9. Was short on toilet paper while camping
10. At this point, what difference does it make?

  1. Excuse #6 seems to strain credulity a bit as Senator Kennedy has been dead for several years, although the IRS can go back a few years, so I think I would go with #10 myself.


  2. 13. Blown away by tornado (2008).
    14. Blown away by hurricane (2010).
    15. Swallowed by an earthquake (2012).
    16. Buried by landslide (2014).


  3. And so when we move to TX, we shall move to this district.

    17. You just learned that tax receipts are necessary from a news report
