Ex-Jesuit Makes Not-So-Good News

Here's the story.

[NY State] Gov. Paterson's chief of staff now says he owed nearly $300,000 in back taxes, $100,000 more than was previously known — and his lawyer blamed the problem on "non-filer syndrome."

Charles O'Byrne's attorney, Richard Kestenbaum, mentioned the virtually unheard-of ailment at a briefing for reporters intended to quell the firestorm surrounding O'Byrne's failure to file income-tax returns from 2001 to 2005.

O'Byrne, 49, a former Jesuit priest with close ties to the Kennedy family, has already blamed his neglect to file — first reported by The Post — on clinical depression

Well, it's a defense, I suppose.

Think YOU could run that past the IRS?
