Grover Norquist Puts Lindsay Lohan, Scott Walker On His 'Naughty And Nice List'
Grover Norquist targeted actress Lindsay Lohan for "costing all taxpayers so much money" on Americans For Tax Reform's annual "Naughty and Nice List."
In an interview with Newsmax released Sunday, Norquist expanded on the "naughty" on his organization's list. "Oh dear, there's so many. I mean, [President Barack] Obama for killing too many jobs. Lindsay Lohan for costing all taxpayers so much money every time she goes to court -- or forgets to go to court. We have Frank Wolf, a Republican who called for 2 trillion dollars in tax increases -- that was unfortunate," he said. He added the super committee to the list for trying to raise taxes.

Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) blasted Norquist on the House floor last October for being "a roadblock to realistically reforming our tax code" because of the ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge not to raise taxes. Wolf added that he didn't "support raising taxes on the American people."
On Norquist's "nice" list were New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R). He expanded on the super committee: "I think at the end of the day that super-secret committee did us a favor by not supporting a tax increase, but I'm not sure how much credit we want to give them for that," referring to the fact that the bipartisan committee made up of 12 members of Congress failed to come up with an agreement to cut the deficit.
Norquist also attacked Occupy Wall Street protesters. "They've really done a good job of reminding the American people that there are people out there who think they should make a living off of your work," he said. "They don't spend their days looking for work. They just spend their days being mean to policemen and blocking traffic for people who do go to work. And then they whine and have demonstrations demanding that everybody pay them welfare."
"He's making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who's naughty or nice!" said the first of two passerby in the cartoon. "That's Grover Norquist!?" said the second.
