Peter Reilly has really been hammering Kent Hovind on his tax issues on Forbes, and now he’s done an interview with him. It’s bizarre. Hovind doesn’t seem to be able to answer any question simply — he always goes flying off on some tangent that gives him an excuse to quote the Bible.
For instance, he’s asked whether he was told by an IRS agent or other individual that he didn’t have to file a 1040 tax form…and he replies by saying that all of his income was pledged to the church and he had no income, therefore he had nothing to file on. He’s grilled about Glen Stoll, who has been convicted on fraud charges, and Hovind dances around the details, insisting that he’s a “great godly man”.
Only listen if you have a strong tolerance for meandering con men.
He also keeps comparing government institutions to Hitler and the Mafia. I don’t think he’s at all repentant.
