Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning: Steinbrenner Was “Smart Enough To Die In 2010”
Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) takes insensitivity to a new low; he said of George Steinbrenner that “because he was smart enough to die in 2010, there is zero liability on the estate tax.”
The comment was made during a Senate Finance Committee hearing. Bunning, apparently unaware of the bounds of decency, went on to share other financial musings about Mr. Steinbrenner’s estate tax liabilities.
Some comments should remain in the dugout, the locker room, and inside one’s head, Senator Bunning.
