Obama’s tax returns have violations of Illinois law but the media is too focused on the Plumber’s taxes

I was stunned to see some document showing Joe the Plumbers’ tax problems on my 10pm CTnewscast on the local NBC affiliate in Chicago on Thursday night. They have very little time for any national news and they actually spent time on Joe the Plumbers’ tax problems. Amazing

But when an actual candidate — Barack Obama — released his tax returns, which on their face seemed to show an ethics violation of Illinois law, the press couldn’t care less.

Just to remind you, Illinois prohibits state legislators from taking speaking fees, and Barack reported “speaking fees.”
