Hey! Wirch Opponent Pam Stevens Still Hasn't Paid Her State Taxes

If you check out Wisconsin State Senate, Bob Wirch's opponent, Pam Stevens website - under her "platform" section you'll find toward the bottom her thoughts on Government. The last sentence says:
"Self-responsibility is what we need to promote." 
Good for Pam, self-responsibility is a great thing. So we thought that maybe since Pam was all about the responsibility - surely she must have decided to pay the $21,000 in delinquent taxes she owes the state of Wisconsin.

We clicked over to the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access website to check on the three separate delinquency warrants the state has filed against her. To our surprise, it said she hasn't paid the state back yet.

So much for personal responsibility.

When we first wrote about Pam and her accounting troubles back in May, a few people got a little huffy and said Pam's delinquent tax problem just showed she was more like the rest of us - just trying to get by.

Really?

The Siren doesn't know about you, but we don't have any warrants filed against us for delinquent taxes...or any warrants filed in general at all. The "rest" of us pay our taxes and do our fair share, and wouldn't dare run for office owing thousands of dollars to the very people we're asking to hire us.

To date, Stevens has not commented on why the state says she owes over $20,000 - but we're not certain anyone has actually asked her and her website offers no explanation.

We suggest State Republicans who have chipped in a couple bucks to her campaign hold a fundraiser so she pay back the people of Wisconsin first.
