Another Democrat senator with a yacht....

When it rains it pours.  See previous post.  Nominees for The Whitey Award are coming out of the woodwork.  Or in this case, the ocean.

Democrat Senator (and all-around man of the people) Jeff Greene and Democrat Senator (and all-around man of the people) John Kerry both own yachts.  Greene's is named "Summerwind".
Like Senator Kerry, the hero of the previous post, Senator Greene is doing his part to fight government waste.
He's doing this by not paying taxes on his yacht.

Here's The Miami Herald, mostly reporting on Jeff Greene's yacht anchor supposedly going through a coral reef, but eventually getting to the money quote:

Greene bought Summerwind in 2003, registering it in the Marshall Islands, a well-known tax haven.



The article doesn't say how much money Greene saved from being wasted with this maneuver, but it might rival Senatory Kerry's $500,000.00  
Congratulations, Senator Greene.  You've won The Whitey Award for eliminating government waste by not paying taxes.

I believe Kerry's boat is called "Scaramouche," unless he traded it in for a bigger yacht.
