Corruption and wingnut Christianity seem to go hand in hand. Case in point: Vox Day, misogynist Christian freak, is the son of Robert Beale, Minnesota millionaire, founder of both a computer products company and the Minnesota Christian Coalition. The elder Beale is on the lam from The Man for tax evasion.
“He fundamentally believes, and has stuck to his belief since this case started, that the federal income tax is illegal,” said Bradford Beale, his son and vice president of Comtrol Corp., the firm that his father founded.
“It was common knowledge at Comtrol,” wrote Rank, “that Beale was opposed to paying taxes as Beale had begun encouraging people at Comtrol not to pay their taxes and had even placed a poster in the Comtrol lunchroom advising people not to pay taxes.”
Theodore Beale, AKA Vox Day, tries to pretend it’s all a minor misunderstanding.
“He is a highly intelligent, highly educated man,” Theodore Beale said of his father. “My sense is that he believes the tax laws are being applied improperly by agents who either don’t understand that or have gone rogue.”
Daddy makes several million dollars a year, and refuses to pay any income tax. I don’t think there’s a misunderstanding or bad IRS agents trying to persecute him: he thinks he’s above the law.
Oh, and Theodore Beale was contacted at his home in Italy—no doubt enjoying the fruits of his family’s wealth.
