Today Tom Daschle announced he is pulling himself out of consideration for Secretary of Health and Human Services because he owed approx $120,000 in unpaid taxes. Right before that Nancy Killefer withdrew her name as potential Chief Performance Officer because of about $1000 in owed taxes.
And even new Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, somehow forgot to pay $34,000 yet still managed to get confirmed.
Many are blaming Obama for not vetting his nominees. But my editorial cartoon shows that maybe Obama was thinking about the economy and is just working his plan.
