“The Darth Vader of the Evil Empire State is getting cold feet,” declares Connecticut’s tax commissioner Gene Gavin as he blasts New York’s Attorney General Eliot L. Spitzer for failing to act on his threat to sue Connecticut over their sales tax rebate program. Nor is Gavin afraid if Spitzer does go forth with the suit. “Our own Jedi Knight [Attorney General] Richard Blumenthal, will defeat him and repel this evil threat.” In response, Spitzer sent Gavin a Darth Vader figurine with a hand-written note: “Gene — The empire state strikes back! All the best, Eliot.” Spitzer says he’s filing suit on July 9. At issue is whether Connecticut can give $50 sales tax rebate checks to residents but not non-resident shoppers.
