There was a guy named Calendar back in the days of George Washington. Anyway he was a miserable chap. he blackmailed Thomas Jefferson saying that if he didnt give him money, he would go public on one of his extra-marital affairs. BTW, Calendar got way drunk one night and was found floating in a river the next morning. History books hint that he was dealt with by his peers. I have a negative view of people who seem to benefit albeit secretly from scandals involving other people.
i voted don't kno because i take it case by case .... but i think paying taxes and crime is bad but if it is something like don't tell mum i took an extra cookie from the cookie jar then i wouldn't give a shit. But crime is wrong and not paying taxes hurts yourself because U WILL GET CAUGHT OUT!!!
