“Conservative Republican” John Brunner Late paying Taxes on Airplane

July 10th, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

“Conservative Republican” John Brunner’s conservative bona fides have taken quite a hit these last couple of weeks. First, he basically throws his children under the bus after it was revealed that a charity he and his wife control gave money to a radical animal rights group. Next, we learn that he donated money (here and here) to his  “friend” Charlie Dooley when Dooley was in a very competitive race with a real conservative Republican back in 2010. And now this disturbing news from Politico:

John Brunner, the wealthy Republican businessman locked in a competitive three-way primary for a shot at the first-term Democrat, was more than two months late paying property taxes on his company’s private aircraft in 2006, according to records provided to POLITICO by a Democratic operative.

According to St. Louis County property tax records, Vi-Jon Services — the hand sanitizer company where Brunner was CEO — paid $9,287 in taxes on March 9, 2007. It owed $8,589 on Dec. 31 of the previous year but was charged close to $700 for being tardy. Read more…

Mr. Brunner seems to be a nice man with a very successful track record as a businessman, but after watching his debate performances, it becomes more apparent that he doesn’t have a clue. When he answers questions, it’s like watching Watson the computer from Jeopardy searching through it’s memory banks for the correct answer. You almost expect to see a string hanging out the back of his suit that you can pull to get the right programmed answer from his handlers. In one debate, Mr. Brunner actually said he’s going to Washington to be bi-partisan. No Mr. Brunner, we’re not looking for bi-partisanship, we’re looking for a strong conservative to stop the Obama agenda and the decline of our country.

    I don’t think it’s a big deal that he was 68 days late on his taxes. He’s the CEO, not the CFO. If we’re going to go after politicians for minor mistakes like one, and believe me in the grand scheme this is WAY minor, no one will want to run for public office, and nothing will ever change….
