This just in – the SaveJersey Blog has their own spin on the tax evasion issue.
Wilson is clearly an independent contractor, and as such, is obligated to file his own income taxes on the monies received from Van Drew. The Van Drew campaign would verify this when they file papers with the IRS stating that the monies paid to Wilson were for the services of an independent contractor. Those papers will not be filed, however, because all monies paid to Wilson were listed as “reimbursements”. Even though the money was for GOTV efforts, the IRS has been duped into thinking, by Van Drew, it is a non-taxable event.
At least we can say that our local candidates, even though they are financing this person of questionable character, were honest in their reporting.
