Tom Daschle Withdraws His Nomination For HHS Secretary

Tom Daschle has withdrawn his nomination for secretary of Health and Human Services after his failure to pay substantial taxes came to light. The former Senate majority leader did not pay $128,000 in taxes for a car service provided to him by a firm he did consulting for between 2005 and 2007. Daschle reported the unpaid taxes after being tapped for HHS secretary, and on Jan. 2 he paid $140,000 in back taxes and interest, but he still owes more.

Obama's nominees have been plagued with tax issues. This morning, Nancy Killefer, Obama's nominee for chief performance officer withdrew her candidacy after she failed for a year and a half to pay employment taxes on household help. And Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner managed to overcome the revelation that he failed to pay $34,000 in taxes while working abroad for the International Monetary Fund.

beavis, we'll start with senators and members of the house, followed by governors, state congresspeople, and down from there, and end when the budget deficit is fixed!

Clearly the way to eliminate the budget deficit is to audit every registered Democrat in the country.

Sorry forgot to ask this, this is a technical issue, but is anyone else having the issue of the thread not telling you when new comments are added in the new layout? Before it would tell me 56 comments 5 new...(even if it wasn't accurate, it always told me when there was new comments) now it doesn't at all.

And I simply love that he was going to get confirmed and Obama hadn't spoke out about his actions until Daschle stepped down. With that said i am glad Obama spoke out against it, but it seems he was just going along for the ride.

I think calling them "slimy" is a bit harsh...they did pay their taxes, they just didn't report things they should have in their self-assessment.It is not exactly tax evasion.It's bad, don't get me wrong, but not as bad as not paying your taxes at all.

I'm sure the senate would've blindly pushed him through if he hadn't withdrawn.

"This is how Obama plans to fund the stimulus...collect back taxes from all his slimy cabinet members" Except they aren't his cabinet members.I was going to say it looks like he borrowed some woman's glasses. They don't even fit his face.
