Actor Wesley Snipes, who has tax problems of his own, had a blunt reaction to news about a software engineer who crashed his plane into an office building with nearly 200 IRS employees inside. In an interview Friday with the Associated Press, Snipes asked, "What's new?"
Authorities say A. Joseph Stack III, who was furious with the IRS, crashed his plane into an Austin, Texas, building on Thursday. Stack and one other person were killed.
Snipes said tax problems have been an issue in the U.S. from the very beginning. As the actor put it: "I think it was an issue even for the early colonists and the British, so what's new?"
