Bill Sizemore, Oregon's high-profile anti-tax activist and Republican candidate for governor, has been indicted on tax evasion charges.

The Oregon Department of Justice announced Monday that it has filed the charges against him and his wife, Cindy.

A grand jury indicted the Sizemores on three counts of evading Oregon personal income taxes.

The indictment alleges the couple failed to file tax returns for the tax years 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Bill Sizemore did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.
