The Great Minnesota Tax Dodge

Meet 10 of Minnesota's most notorious state tax scofflaws

FUN FACT The Barkers were once represented in their federal anti-tax case by conservative rabble-rouser Larry Klayman, best known as the attorney for both Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones. More recently Klayman and his organization, Judicial Watch, have joined forces with environmental groups in arguing that documents related to Vice President Dick Cheney's 2001 energy task force should be made public.

QUOTE The Barkers frequently closed their legal briefs with declarations of their Christian faith, such as this comment from a 1999 Hennepin County District Court filing: "Wherefore the Plaintiffs pray for the Judge to respond on the following: May the God of creation intervene in the hearts of men that truth may prevail over deception, that law may prevail over lawlessness. May God cause me to see truth, to acknowledge the truth and to act on the truth. Even so come quickly Lord Jesus. Amen."
