Even Hookers Should Pay Taxes

Dear Editor,

As I’m writing my Income Tax checks, I thought about the recent newspaper articles I read about the “East Side Madam” and her Happy Hookers. I wonder are these people paying their fair share of taxes that pay for all the protection and services they get from our governments.

I can’t believe that a woman, with a cash business, who has squirreled away $10 million in a foreign bank account, has paid her taxes. If she hasn’t paid taxes, she should be arrested (as Al Capone was) for Tax Evasion and the government should claw back all her ill gotten gains.

I also don’t believe that her “Happy Hooker” prostitutes, who get paid in cash, have paid their taxes. If the government has the records from the madam, then they, too, should be arrested and jailed for Tax Evasion and their ill gotten gains should be clawed back, too.

If this isn’t done then our whole tax system is a sham and the people who pay their taxes and pay their fair share are being ripped off.
