Al Sharpton hit with another tax lien

From a New York Post report:

The Rev. Al Sharpton (pictured), who has vowed to clean up his fiscal house, has a new tax lien to pay.

Sharpton owes $359,973 to the IRS for 2009 personal income tax, according to documents on file with the city.

Public records show he owes a total of $3.7 million in city, state and federal taxes, including penalties, dating to 2002. But Sharpton's spokeswoman, Rachel Noerdlinger, said that he had paid back "well over seven figures" as part of agreements with the state and IRS and that the liens remained on the books as "a matter of bureaucracy."

What is meant by a matter of bureaucracy?

If the IRS went after him like they should, he and his attorneys would cry "racist."
