The dog ate my QuickBooks

The brother of the mayor of Philadelphia has been accused of influence peddling andԚ  indicted for failure to pay taxes on $2 million. Oopsie.

He’s using the time-honored if flimsy excuse of poor record keeping which is somewhat akin to getting a ticket for doing 100 mph on the freeway and then claiming innocence because you “forgot” to look at the speedometer.

Inept excuses like this make forensic accountants giggle.
