War Tax Resister Going to Prison for a Year 

A Maine lobster broker is going to prison for a year and a day for filing false tax returns. Sixty-four-year-old Frank Donnelly, of Lamoine, was sentencedMonday in federal court in Bangor. He was also fined $3,000 andordered to pay more than $89,000 in back taxes. According to the Bangor Daily news, Donnelly has said heunderpaid his taxes in 2003 and 2004 because he didn’t want his taxdollars being used in support of war. About 35 local anti-warprotesters stood in front of the federal building Monday in supportof Donnelly. But U.S. District Court Judge John Woodcock said he didn’tbelieve Donnelly’s claims. Assistant U.S. Attorney James McCarthycalled Donnelly a “common, ordinary, run-of-the-mill…taxcheat.” (AP)
