Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan — the now famous mom who set up camp across the street from George Bush’s ranch after her son was killed in Iraq and has been a venerable thorn in bad government’s ass ever since — informed her facebook friends today that she is the target of an IRS lawsuit:
I just got a notice from the IRS that I owe them 104 grand and they are going to levy my bank accounts and property. I don’t have any property and there’s less than 150.00 in my bank accounts. Looks like Fed Prison is in my future. I would rather go to prison than fund the crimes of this government. I am going to send them a notice that they owe me infinity dollars for killing my son.
Details of the pending legal action are probably forthcoming (we’d love to see the official reply notice being delivered into the hands of a derpfaced bureaucrat).
Some days it seems like the best people have the worst luck, and the worst people have the best luck. And even though she’s a self-avowed socialist (blech), we know that her numerous public stunts have elevated the anti-war movement’s visibility. Best of luck in your fight against the tax man Cindy, it’s going to be an upriver swim even if you’re innocent.
Static over “socialist (blech)” update: Listen you knuckle heads, if you want to start calling me nasty names because you somehow got it twisted that I was calling Ms. Sheehan some pejorative label, well then surprise: you’re the ones acting like douches (copying that count dracula riff… because it was hilarious, come on bro get your own jokes).
But hey, thanks for playing. It’s been real douchey.
