GOP House Leader Fails to File Tax Returns

Rep. Lance Cargill is the bright young Republican who leads the Oklahoma Legislature as Speaker of the House.

Too bad Rep. Cargill, an honors graduate of OSU and attorney who graduated from Vanderbilt Law School in Nashville, can't remember to file his tax returns.

The Daily Oklahoma reported Sunday that Cargill was one of several legislators who had failed to file state returns in recent years. In Cargill's case, he was behind two years.

We don't know how this happens to ambitious young lawyers. Apparently, some of them get so wrapped up in telling other citizens what to think that they forget to live up to their own civic responsibilities.
