Romanian Witch Tax

They used to burn them at stakes. Even today, there are witch trials held in the Transylvanian town of Sighisoara (albeit only as part of a package tour).

This month, in a desperate attempt to balance their budget, the Romanian government began taxing witches, fortune tellers, and astrologers. The witches are fighting back as only they know how - by casting spells and hexes on government officials.
So, if Romania is governed by a frog next month, you heard it here first.
