You’ll be happy to know this entry has absolutely nothing to do with Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terrence Wall’s efforts at avoiding paying income taxes. Instead, I’d like to take a moment to talk about Terrence Wall’s refusal to provide his date of birth during a recent interview with Stuart Rothenberg of CQ Politics:
The main Republican contender currently is Terrence Wall, a prosperous real estate developer who put $300,000 into his campaign but hasn’t paid state taxes in nine of the past 10 years. Democrats apparently have other tax ammunition to use against Wall.
When I interviewed Wall recently, he refused to give his date of birth. He only offered the year of his birth (and his age), apparently because he is concerned about identity theft. Wall, in other words, has a long way to go before he is a serious threat to Feingold, even in a bad year for Democrats.
As Xoff from Uppity Wisconsin points out, a Google cache of Wall’s Facebook page shows Wall’s date of birth is June 4, 1964, but seeing as how Wall has subsequently removed his date of birth from his Facebook page, how do we really know when Wall was born? Perhaps it’s time, as Xoff notes, for a Terrence Wall “birther” movement, because Wisconsin’s voters deserve answers, and they deserve the truth!
(That last little bit was humor, in case you couldn’t tell)
