Not So Invincible After All

(originally launched into cyberspace on 02/02/2008)

Dear Subscriber,

Overshadowed by the verdict in the persecution of Wesley Snipes was
another verdict, this one in Hawaii. The tax evasion trial of Lucky
Bennett, defended by Larry Becraft, ended with a hung jury. I don't
know anything else about Mr. Bennett, or about the case. I don't
know if it had anything to do with the 861 evidence or not, and I
don't know if the feds will try to retry him. But once again, the
supposedly invincible IRS/DOJ bully failed to do the damage it
tried to inflict. Poor them. It must be tough trying to illegally
extort 100,000,000 people all at once.

(P.S. Incidentally, I got the facts slightly messed up in a prior
message. The 17-defendant acquittal I was thinking of was not in
California. It was the case involving Franklin Saunders, also
defended by Larry Becraft, which happened in Memphis, Tennessee.)

(P.P.S. I never got any response to my e-mail to "TaxMama,"
pointing out half a dozen blatant untruths in her "story" about
Wesley Snipes.)
