Obama's Appointees and Tax Problems

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As a result, both Killefer and Daschle have now withdrawn.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?

I wonder if some Washington elites think they are above the law. I can't imagine such a cavalier stance on not paying taxes from a democrat. Aren't they the taxers? They should be outraged.
