AynRandy, Tax Deadbeat

Yep, the Tribble-Toupeed One has good reasons to eliminate the tax code.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul paid a delinquent property tax bill in Florida on Tuesday, only hours after the Republican presidential candidate said he wants to use fire, a wood chipper or a chain saw to "kill" the U.S. tax code.

In the video, titled "How would you kill the tax code?," Paul says he is "trying to kill the tax code, all 70,000 pages of it."

Meanwhile, records show that Paul, through a company he created, owns a half-interest in a condominium in Destin, Fla., that had $2,489 in delinquent property taxes as of Tuesday morning. The original $2,159.14 tax bill on the condo, which has an assessed value of $161,000, was due March 31.

A few hours after the Herald-Leader asked Paul's presidential campaign about the tax bill, a representative of the Okaloosa County tax collector's office confirmed that the past-due bill had been paid Tuesday afternoon.
