Boy, do I feel like a chump

Because I just sent in a fairly hefty check to the feds for Tax Day. Perhaps I should have just bagged it and said "I was unaware."

US Attorney General Eric Holder and his brother failed to pay the property taxes on their childhood home in Queens, which they inherited last August after their mother died, The Post has learned.

And because their ailing mom, Miriam, was already behind on two quarterly tax bills when she succumbed to illness on Aug. 13, the charges went unpaid for more than a year -- growing to $4,146. (Link.)

Holder and his bro said they "were unaware" of the missed payments. I wonder if that excuse would work for me.

How many Obama administration officials does that make, now, who've had tax issues? Five? Six?

I'm certain that it's the city's fault; they probably never mailed them the tax bills.
