PAY YOUR TAXES, PATRIOT -- Fox News: "Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown calls for Burger King boycott over Tim Hortons deal."

Do you know who else hates paying taxes? This guy.

"Ohio Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown was more than four months delinquent in paying taxes on his Washington, D.C., apartment and had to pay a penalty and interest last week. This was not the first time, records show. Brown also was delinquent in 2006 and 2007 and paid penalties and interest, according to tax records from the District of Columbia."
