Do You Care If Obama's Treasury Pick Didn't Pay His Taxes?

Do You Care If Obama's Treasury Pick Didn't Pay His Taxes?

Timothy Geithner, the man who wants to spend trillions of dollars in taxpayer money as the next US Treasury Secretary, forgot to pay his own taxes. No, it didn't just slip his mind one year when he was living under a rock leading up to April 15 — from 2001 to 2004 Geithner failed to pay $34,000 in taxes while working abroad for the International Monetary Fund.

Thanks to Obama's transition team's super detective work, Geithner realized his mistake and apparently paid the years-late taxes days before Obama publicly tapped him for the job. The drama doesn't stop there. The transition team also disclosed the fact that Geithner hadn't realized that in 2005 his housekeeper's legal immigration employment documentation lapsed for the last few months she worked for him. Do these spots on Geithner's record make you question Obama's choice?
