Choice for Treasury secretary admits he failed to pay taxes
Obama’s choice for Treasury secretary disclosed publicly Tuesday that he failed to pay tens of thousands of dollars in federal taxes from 2001 to 2004.
Senate Democrats tried to brush aside the last-minute complication as a minor bump on an otherwise smooth path to confirmation for Timothy Geithner, who has been president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
After the underpayments were detected, Geithner paid back taxes and interest totaling $43,200.

Yesterday, I started this thread about that. He also let his maid's green card expire, thus employing an illegal alien for a time. Not just that, but he paid those taxes the day before he was nominated (hmm...)! But the Obama team brushed it off as a "minor clerical error" on his part (knowing very well that if a Rep. nom had done this, they would have crucified that nom).

He is a socialist democrat so this is a non-issue."If every poor man is to come here and start requesting money for all his children, the applicants will never be satisfied and the nation's finances will collapse." Emperor Tiberius: Tacitus:Annals
