The Feingold Smear-Gnomes Are Active

Gee. A misleading story about a (R) candidate running against Feingold. What a shock!

The records show Watertown businessman Dave Westlake reported zero net taxes in 2002.

Feingold's operatives forgot to tell the AP reporter Westlake's phone number, I guess.

Dave Westlake, candidate for U.S. Senate from Watertown, denounced the AP for misleading Wisconsin voters today by printing an article that states he did not pay taxes to the state of Wisconsin in 2002. Westlake did not live in Wisconsin that year and, as such, did not owe any Wisconsin income taxes.

One expects that Senator "I'm a Really Honest Maverick" Russ Feingold will denounce these tactics.

Did Westlake say anything about all the other years that he didn't pay taxes?

Really, no taxes paid?

Maybe he was less than 10 years old and didn't owe any then, either.

Does Feingold pay taxes or just alimony?
