Craig James to Release Tax Returns

Craig James has a press conference scheduled for this afternoon, at which he is expected to release five years worth of tax returns. He’s already called on David Dewhurst, Ted Cruz, and Tom Leppert to release their taxes. I guess this is just what politicians do these days when they are behind in the polls; they show people how much money they make, then ask their opponents to do the same. Probably couldn’t hurt him, unless something truly shocking shows up. James, of course, already needed a boost before news came out about “conflicting statements” in a lawsuit involving former Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach.

    File this under “if a tree falls in an empty forest, does it make a sound?” James will get the attention he wants when he abandons his Senate bid, but not before.

    Has the allegation that Craig James Killed 5 Hookers While at SMU been addressed sufficiently?

    I thought we already knew how Craig James made his money, from the Pony Express days.

    It’ll be interesting to see whether any of the five returns reference payments into the Victims’ Compensation Fund.

    And why FIVE years worth? Why not four Or six? It’s almost like he’s taunting the police, daring them to re-open old cases involving murdered hookers.

    I think he should release his tax returns in a room with the lights off.

    Will the opponents be asked to release the names of hookers they have killed as well?

    I want to see Craig’s tax returns from when he was making some Pony Express money. That would be worth reporting.

    “Probably couldn’t hurt him, unless something truly shocking shows up.”

    If we were allowed to dig up his backyard, I’m sure we would find something shocking. In fact, we would find five shocking things. Namely, the skeletons of five desperate, lost young women with hearts of gold.

    So the most important question is this: Why won’t Craig James let us dig up his backyard? What is he hiding?

    It will not be as shocking as the unproven idea that CRAIG JAMES KILLED FIVE HOOKERS
