Dec 12, 1989 - Leona Helmsley was fined $7 million and sentenced to four years in prison for tax evasion.  Helmsley's fate was sealed when a former housekeeper testified during the trial that she had heard Helmsley say: "We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes...", a saying that became notorious and was identified with her for the rest of her life.  Be a winner with the Classic Rewards Club when you enter the keyword Taxes.  Good luck and thanks for listening.
