Roll Call is reporting that Texas Rep. John Carter (R) today admitted failing to report $48,000 in capital gains from stocks sold in 2008--this in addition to the approx. $300,000 he acknowledged misreporting between 2006 and 2007. 

I will never understand: why is it so hard for lawmakers and policymakers to pay their darn taxes?
