Why hasn't the gov't ever been held in contempt?
How was it fraudulent? Almost anything can become an
amendment as long as it doesn't go against the constitution
and 3/4 of the states ratify it.

Really? You don't understand that many if not most federal judges are
lazy, incompetent and/or just plain corrupt?

Anyway, this was adjudicated, and the court declared it 'a political
question', meaning they decided not to rock the boat and 'punted' the issue:

"[Defendant] Stahl's claim that ratification of the 16th
Amendment was fraudulently certified constitutes a political question
we could not undertake independent resolution of this issue without
expressing lack of respect due coordinate branches of Government..."

U.S. v. Stahl (1986), 792 F2nd 1438

So it was never labeled unconstitutional. So it is unless the court decides it's not.
