The State of California has just filed a new tax lien against fallen football star O.J. Simpson, according to TMZ.

Simpson is currently in a Nevada prison doing time for robbery.

California claims Simpson owes them over $300k in taxes from the year 2000. Simpson also has a federal tax lien filed against him for the years 2007-2010, for just under $200k.

This comes just weeks after a Nevada judge agreed to grant Simpson a hearing in May to determine if the former football star, who in 2007 took sports memorabilia from a hotel room at gunpoint that he claims had been stolen from him, was so badly represented by his lawyers that he should be freed from prison and get another trial.

Simpson was also charged with the 1994 murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, but was acquitted of those murders. However, Simpson still owes the Goldman and Brown families millions from a wrongful death lawsuit he lost.

    OJ Simpson stories still abound, after 20 years, proving they are the ultimate racist dog whistle, and just like Pavlov’s trained canines white folks come a running with mouth salivating every time anyone invokes Simpson’s name. Never mind the fact that authorities may very well have attempted to frame him in order to conduct that phony murder trial, with the cooperation of his own defense attorneys. Read “PURSUIT OF EXHIBIT 35 in the OJ Simpson Murder Trial” at amazon and/or view the documentary “Serpents Rising: The OJ Simpson Conspiracy” at amazon. Maybe it will help keep some of you from salivating so often.

    brotherap: Give us a break. I am as open-minded as a reasonable person can be when it comes to potential government wrongdoing, but your comment and the whole idea that OJ was framed in some grand conspiracy simply don’t pass the laugh test. The evidence was substantial and convincing for anyone except those jurors, who were sequestered and saw only the clever show put on by the defense against an incompetent prosecution with a star-struck judge who was over his head. Your type of comment is what makes white people want to marginalize black people; you seem ready to believe anything as long as it validates your angst. The 95% of the rest of intelligent Americans saw the evidence and righfully concluded this guy to be a petty, jealous, arrogant, unintelligent, violent animal who killed two innocent humans by nearly decapitating his own ex-wife and stabbing a nice kid in the wrong place at the wrong time. Let him rot in prison in Nevada, where they apparently don’t appreciate murderers. Your comment, brotherap, was insulting to our intelligence and good sense. Also– L.A. law enforcement is not clever enough to pull-off a grand conspiracy.
