Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) calls the "Tea Party" "despicable" and "shameful".
"It’s despicable that right-wing Republicans would attempt to cheapen a significant, honorable moment of American history with a shameful political stunt," she added. "Not a single American household or business will be taxed at a higher rate this year. [Emphasis Mine]
Notice the words THIS YEAR. This year's taxes are the result of George Bush's TAX CUTS. So why is the Congresswoman complaining at this time? Could this be the reason? Congresswoman's husband pleads guilty to two felonies
The husband of an Illinois congresswoman pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee. {Emphasis Mine]
So in other words, a Enormous, Grassroots Tax Protest is Despicable and Shameful, but being guilty of the Felonies of Tax Violations and Bank Fraud are not???

To be fair, the Congresswoman is not accused of any wrongdoing.
