U.S. Gov't Makes $33 Mil Mistake with Joe Francis

3/13/2010 3:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe FrancisHey Joe Francis, it's me Uncle Sam.

So remember when I filed that $33 million tax lien against you in November 2009? And remember how I filed papers last month saying it was all forgotten and you owed me nothing?

Um, yeah, about that ... my bad! Turns out you still really do owe me a huge chunk of change. I had the Department of Treasury file papers last week saying we released you from that tax lien ... by mistake. Whoopsies!!!

But there is some good news ... you don't owe me the full $33 million -- I only want $29,393,681.45. So if you can just write me a check, that would be awesome.

Thanks,
Uncle Sam

I didn't think a tax lien that big would just go away.

Write the check, Joe.

Joe can afford to make the payment. What perplexes me more is that the celebrity enclave of pals that hang with him or at his south of the border hot spot don't consider his exploitation of young women - girls who our daughters and children that are encouraged, induldged to place themselves into compromising situations that are forever captured on video (and what's on the cutting room floor, but still remain in Joe's personal collection is filth). Joe's a porn king but I guess it's okay to hang with him. Pay the piper Joe, fight it, spend more in legal fees, make your lawyers rich. They love you!

The government continues to rail his ass...But im starting to think foul play is involved.
What do rich girls that have billionaire daddies do all the time? They Party.
Now, and as you know Joe scouts all the spots and what not..I bet you anything he had some girl on there that shouldnt be in there ya know?
Basically saying, Higher Up peeps are drilling him into the ground..for all we know Joe could have a politicians daughter on a Harddrive..

The american government is a joke.They are only after this guy because he made money doing something the prude IDIOTS in this country do not approve of.If he had made his money from stealing from others or conning others well then it would be ok.
