Geithner was confirmed and it's probable that Daschle will be, too. In my opinion, despite what they say, both of those guys knowingly and willfully failed to pay taxes they owed, hoping that they wouldn't be audited. When they got caught, they ponied up, but if they hadn't been appointed to Cabinet positions, they probably would have gotten away with it. I agree with Instapundit reader Thomas Prewitt: "I vote that we audit everyone in Congress and the Administration and see how many other tax cheats we have.”
As to Geithner and Daschle being confirmed, I want to know what it would take for an Obama appointee not
to be confirmed. Talk about setting standards and being role models ... Yechhhh!
How's this for a bumper sticker: "NO MORE SCUMBAGS IN WASHINGTON!!!!"
