The latest on Air Claire

Missouri's senior senator, Democrat Claire McCaskill, who you'll have the chance to vote out of office next November, recently admitted to improperly billing taxpayers for use of an airplane that she owned on political trips not government business.

Now it turns out that McCaskill - a former auditor - failed to pay $287,000.00 in personal property taxes on that very same plane.  (Link to story here.)

Is Claire a crook?  Or, best case scenario, she just can't keep track of "minor" things like taxes she owes.  After all, $287,000.00 is just pocket change for McCaskill.

Either way, does she really deserve to keep her job representing our state in Washington?
