For some reason, President Obama's appointees seem to have one common streak among them: tax problems.
Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary: $34,000 of late income taxes.
Nancy Killefer, Chief Performance Officer: Tax lien for non-payment of unemployment compensation taxes.
Tom Daschle: Health and Human Services Secretary: $145,000 of late income taxes.
As a result, both Killefer and Daschle have now withdrawn.
The question of the hour is, can President Obama appoint someone who has no tax problems?
