Wesley Snipes still one jump ahead of IRS
The leader of the Guiding Light of God Ministries, the antitax group authorities say helped actor Wesley Snipes hide millions of dollars from the IRS, made an initial court appearance in Ocala Wednesday, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Eddie Ray Kahn, 63, was arrested in Panama on charges of conspiracy to defraud the IRS and presenting a false claim for payment to the agency. That leaves Snipes, who is shooting a movie in Africa, as the only defendant named in the indictment who has not been taken into custody.
Ann Coulter's choice of precincts questioned
Did bestselling author and conservative pundit Ann Coulter knowingly vote in the wrong precinct this year? That would be a crime, but Palm Beach Elections Supervisor Arthur Anderson says Coulter is cooperating in his inquiry. Coulter, who recently spoke at USF, tried to "distract and divert focus on the process regarding this complaint," Anderson said, so he may turn it over to prosecutors. Coulter owns a home near Worth Avenue in Palm Beach but registered her voting address as the home of her real estate agent. Knowingly voting in a wrong precinct is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
