Re: Uh... Kerry did not dodge taxes. In fact he and his wife PAID taxes they could have easily avoided - for political reasons.
From the Boston Globe accounts, Kerry is not the majority owner of the yacht - that it owned by a company set up by his wife, in PA, where she has her primary residence. Their intention is to rent out the boat when they are not using it. The boat was designed by a RI company and will be maintained and rented out from RI.
The Boston Herald made it an issue that the boat was registered in RI which does not have a sales tax on yachts. From day one, Kerry said he would pay it - and did.
In his near 3 decades in public life, he was never accused at any other point of avoiding taxes.
