Hart May Face Fed Criminal Charges

Above, an ad placed in last week's Nickel's Worth by Rep. Phil Hart & the Idaho Liberty Caucus.

Federal authorities may be laying the groundwork for criminal charges against tax-protesting former Idaho state Rep. Phil Hart. In bankruptcy court documents, federal officials are charging that Hart lied under oath, concealed or destroyed records and attempted to “hinder, delay or defraud his creditors, including the Internal Revenue Service.” The filings by the U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee and the U.S. Department of Justice are aimed at preventing Hart from being relieved of any of his tax debts through his latest bankruptcy case, but the implications could go well beyond that/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Does this case seem to be getting seriouser and seriouser for former Rep. Hart?
