A bunch of old pantsuits and “household items” are now worth a $50,000 tax deduction?

Who knew?

Via Boston Herald.

More than three years ago, Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the Internal Revenue Service that she had donated $50,000 in used clothing and “household items” to local thrift stores in 2014….

That was the fake Indian’s story and she was sticking to it — until late yesterday afternoon, after we inquired about her rather, uh, profligate spending habits.

Suddenly, the fake Indian’s story changed.

The totals, her flack said, were “entry errors.”

Hey, Senator, glad I could be of service, in helping you correct your false filing. (And I assume the returns, signed under pains and penalties of perjury, will now be corrected.)

Entry errors — I must remember that the next time I get busted lying on my taxes. If only President Trump had thought to claim “entry errors” when The New York Times came to him for their magnum opus on his taxes in this morning’s editions….

The fake Indian’s flack said her entry errors “did not affect the ultimate amount that she owed to the IRS because the deductions taken (column h) were correct.”

She continued, “The accurate original value was closer to the original value of similar clothing and household items in Senator Warren’s 2012 taxes (around $8,000).”….

    She should have claimed $24 (thousand) and stated that the pants had old beads on them.
