www.Politico44.com reports YET ANOTHER ONE:
“Nancy Killefer, who was slated to be the White House’s first chief performance officer, is withdrawing her nomination, an administration aide confirms.
“Administration officials declined to say why Killefer was pulling out, promising more details later. But the former McKinsey consultant faced a $900 lien in 2005 on her home for not paying taxes on household help.”
BUT… HHS nominee Tom Daschle and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner failed to pay thousands and thousands in taxes and Daschle even had to ‘edit” previous tax returns to also reflect charitable donations that were elevated beyond the truth.
Daschle and Greitner just needed to apologize for their “honest mistakes” and “innocent oversights” and all is forgiven…but add Nancy to the Kimba Wood and Lannie Grenier list of women who were pushed out for far less…
I think Pres. Obama and the beltway boys are underestimating how damaging and resentment-fueling these tarnished appointments are to the public’s trust for the government that is spending the PUBLIC’s tax dollars on corporate bailouts, incompetent CEO bonuses and endless war.
As Americans across the country are filing their personal taxes this winter, do you think if they fudge a few thousand here or there that the IRS will accept “It was an innocent mistake, so sorry” from them. If they get caught perhaps they can wait for trial with Madoff in his Manhattan penthouse!!
The beat goes on…and on…and on…President Obama: what you appear to be, be REALLY.
