Alleged Tax Cheat Harriette Walters Speaks: Hear It Here

Seems someone forgot to disconnect an old office number for Harriette Walters, the alleged mastermind of the $50 million D.C. tax office scam. She can still be heard sounding very helpful on a voice message from an old phone extension at the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue: 202.442.6762. Call it for yourself until the city gets around to taking it down, which could be soon since D.C. Wire has made calls inquiring about it.

Update 4:12 p.m.: David Umansky, a spokesman for Chief Financial Officer Natwar Gandhi, tells D.C. Wire that officials decided to keep the phone line active with Walters' voice message to see if anyone would call in and leave a message for her that would aid the criminal investigation. Now, Umansky said, officials are considering turning off the number. He was unaware whether anyone had left a message for her that interested investigators.

Doesn't the Washington Post have more important things to write about? Leave this type of stuff to the Examiner.

I hope she rots for life in prison, along with the rest of em, especially IRS middle manager-guy, and let their convictions stand as a warning throughout the ranks of government. 9.4 trillion in the hole, and climbing...much depends on their ethics and honesty, and where it's lacking, public accountability goes bye-bye.
