Free Walt Anderson, by Thomas Andrew Olson

Free Walt Anderson, by Thomas Andrew Olson:

"While the $210 million in taxes the government claims is 'owed' by Anderson is touted as the biggest 'tax evasion scam in history', keep in mind that even if they succeed in collection, that money will only enable the federal government to function for about 44 minutes. The US this year will spend more money in 10 minutes than Joseph Strauss spent building the entire Golden Gate Bridge, even adjusted for inflation.

An associate spoke directly with Anderson today, and he claimed to be extremely puzzled about the government's motives, in that he had offered to come in whenever they asked, and thus was completely surprised at being arrested at the end of a long flight. It seems to me from that, that Anderson genuinely believes he did nothing illegal to protect his assets, actions which are virtually identical to what thousands of other wealthy citizens do to protect theirs.

But at the end of the day, it's really not about the money. It's about IRS bureaucrats getting a 'trophy' arrest in time for tax season. "
