November 17 - Oh lookie, y'all. The Congressional Frat House is no longer tax exempt.
Residents of the C Street Christian fellowship house will no longer benefit from a loophole that had allowed the house's owners to avoid paying property taxes.

Previously, the house -- despite being home to numerous lawmakers -- had been tax exempt, because it was classified as a church. That arrangement had allowed the building's owner, the secretive international Christian organization The Family, to charge significantly below market rents to its residents. In recent year, Senators John Ensign (R-NV), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Sam Brownback (R-KS) and Jim DeMint (R-SC), and Reps. Zach Wamp (R-TN), Bart Stupak (D-MI) and Mike Doyle (D-PA) have all reportedly called C Street home.

A church? A church? Well, I guess paying taxes and extortion fees is just asking too much, huh? The boys of Sigma Epsilon Chi are going to have to pay their taxes just like everybody else. (Thanks to Carl up north for the heads-up.)
