Obama Uses Tax-Evader Marc Anthony as Example of Someone Who Can Pay More in Taxes
On June 26, 2012, President Barack Obama held a fundraiser in Miami, FL featuring Latin pop-singer Marc Anthony. During his speech, Obama used the singer as an example of a wealthy person who can pay his more in taxes.
Problem is, Marc Anthony has a history of evading taxes.
In 2010, Anthony was hit with a tax lien of $3.4 million, including bills of $1.8 million and $1.6 million in back taxes on his estate located in Long Island.
That's not all.
In 2007, Anthony was slammed with $2.5 million in back tax bills, a product of not paying his taxes for four years.
