Obama Treasury-designate Tim Geithner might not make it because of his failure to pay payroll taxes totaling about $45,000 when he worked at the IMF. Geithner paid some of the back taxes in 2006 after an IRS audit, but it was only recently — after his Treasury appointment by Obama — that he paid back earliertaxes from 2001 and 2002. For a guy who will reside over the IRS, this is certainly a major embarrassment.
I can't believe if Obama keeps this guy. How can we have any respect for a guy that will oversee the IRS, when he himself did not bother to pay the taxes? I thought Democrats love paying taxes, but I guess not their own taxes, they want "other" people pay for them!
UPDATE: THE TAX CHEATER GOT CONFIRMED, SHAME ON THE SENATORS WHO VOTED FOR HIM
