Obama performance chief Killefer out, citing taxes.Â As least Ms. Killefer “resolved” her tax issue before Obama tapped her.
If she withdraws her nomination due to a tax lien of less than $1,000, shouldn’t Daschle do the same for more than $100,000 in unpaid taxes?Â And if he doesn’t, Republicans need follow thier new national chairman’s adivce and fight this nomination.
UPDATE:Â A reader writes in:
3 nominees in 10 days who failed to pay back taxes. This is becoming a laugh riot….and I LOVE IT!!! So much for an open, honest, and ethical government with “shared burdens and responsibilites.” Of course, god forbid the media actually label them hypocrites. To them, it was a “simple mistake.” Any average Joe who did what these people did would be thrown in jail.
UPDATE: It’s official: Daschle withdraws as nominee for HHS secretary.
