Is Heath Shuler dodging taxes and ethics rules?

shuler [1]It looks like residents, and former residents, of the now famous [2] C Street house in DC are trying to evade more than just public scrutiny. Polticians who lived at the posh townhouse apparently [3] received subsidized rent and failed to report that fact to the IRS or on ethics disclosure forms.

The World magazine says [4] that Shuler lives at C Street when he is in Washington.

Heath Shuler and Mike McIntyre are both affiliated with the secretive religious group that owns the C Street house, although I don’t think that McIntyre lives at the townhouse. The home was registered as a church and had tax-exempt status. It lost that designation after a group [5] of Ohio pastors called for an investigation.
