John McAfee, the millionaire founder of the anti-virus software bearing his name, has fled the country to elude the IRS and conduct his 2020 presidential campaign from his boat in international waters.
An outspoken critic of the IRS, McAfee claims that “The IRS has convened a grand jury in the state of Tennessee to charge myself, my wife and four of my campaign workers with unspecified IRS crimes of a felonious nature.”
McAfee took to Twitter recently to state that taxation is illegal and publicly declare that he hasn’t filed a return for 8 years. He recently told CNN that his constant criticism of the IRS is what has provoked the indictment. McAfee states, “I have been speaking out more and more against the IRS, both in state when I keynote and also on my social media. I think they just had enough.”
Confident that he can conduct his presidential campaign while in exile, McAfee says that he will continue to sail in international waters as long as he’s not convicted of charges by the IRS.
