They need to pay their fair share!

According to the Washington Times Inside Politics column today:

The Florida Democratic Party, out of cash and out of power, has been slapped with a federal tax lien for failing to pay nearly $200,000 in Social Security and payroll taxes, the Miami Herald reports.
The latest hit -- coming just as the party's most recent former chief revs up a campaign for governor -- stands to further marginalize a party that has struggled in recent years to compete financially and politically with organized and well-financed Republicans, the newspaper said.
And it could give ammunition to the Democratic and Republican rivals of Scott Maddox, who left the party's leadership post last month to run for governor, touting his time as chairman.
