Today in 1972: Jane Briggs Hart, wife of Michigan Senator Philip Hart, informs the Internal Revenue Service that she wouldn’t pay some of her taxes.
Instead, she deposited her quarterly estimated tax of $6,200 in a special bank account. She wrote: “I cannot contribute one more dollar toward the purchase of more bombs and bullets.”
