American Hero Sinbad Doesn’t Pay Taxes?

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

The greatest American hero since forever, Sinbad, is actually a traitor to his country because he does not pay for it. If you’ll recall, he was the leading provocateur in “Sinbadgate” (named after Sheryl Crow, an important participant), the whistle-blowing scandal about Hillary’s Clinton’s fake trip to Bosnia. But now the funniest comedian of some decade is one of the most high profile tax delinquents in the United States, according to the I.R.S. Similarly heroic politico Dick Morris is also a tax delinquent, but he’s also not a human.

Here are the biggest delinquents, including a murderer:

  • Dick Morris: The former political adviser to Bill Clinton is a Fox News analyst. The IRS filed a $1.5 million tax lien against him in 2003.
  • Sinbad: The comedian/ actor — whose full name is Sinbad Adkins — owes $2.1 million to the state of California, according to the California Franchise Tax Board.
  • Catalina Vasquez Villalpando: The former treasurer of the United States — her signature appears on paper currency printed during the administration of the first President Bush — owes $168,000 in taxes to Washington, D.C., the city reports.
  • O.J. Simpson: The ex-football star, who lives in Florida, owes $1.5 million in California taxes, the state says.
