Treasury Secretary nominee Tim Geithner failed to pay taxes from '01-'04.
And I love what incoming Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs had to say about this. It's very Clintonian. No, it's Obamanian.
"(Geithner) has dedicated his career to our country and served with honor, intelligence and distinction. That service should not be tarnished by honest mistakes, which, upon learning of them, he quickly addressed."Gibbs is just a really bad liar and it will be fun deconstructing all the whoppers he's going to be telling over the next four years. There's no honor in taking five to eight years to pay back taxes.
In fact, Geithner only paid the money he owed the IRS days before Obama announced his nomination. Yeah, he's really serving with 'distinction.'
