    Daschle Withdraws Nomination for Health and Human Services Secretary
    Tom Daschle has withdrawn his nomination for health and human services secretary, and President Obama has accepted.

    powered by BaynoteTom Daschle has withdrawn his nomination for health and human services secretary, after fielding mounting criticism over his failure to pay more than $130,000 in taxes.

    President Obama stood by Daschle Monday, telling reporters that he "absolutely" supports the former South Dakota senator. But the president accepted Daschle's withdrawal Tuesday morning.

    It was unclear whether Daschle, with his deep network of ties in the Senate stemming in part from his time as majority leader, would have been able to weather the criticism in confirmation.

    Senators were reluctant to state publicly any opposition to Daschle's nomination in recent days. But that started to crack Tuesday morning, as Republican Sen. Jim DeMint called for Obama to withdraw the nomination -- becoming the first senator to say that the former majority leader's tax problems are disqualifying.

    Good decision, whether he jumped or was pushed.

    I wonder if President Obama's cabinet appointment process is actually a fiendishly complex sting opperation by the IRS to identify tax frauds? :D

    Along with Daschle withdrawing another Clinton crook had to withdraw this am. Nancy Killefier withdrew her candidacy to be the first performance officer for the Federal Government. This position did not have to have Senate confirmation so Obama thought he could sneak one in on us.

    She stopped making unemployment compensation payments for a household employee for 1 1/2 years so a lien was placed on her home. She paid it but this just goes to show that these assholes think they are above the law and better than the rest of us.

    I would like to see all politicians vetted by the IRS. Betcha, the Feds might collect a shit pot of money from these turkeys.

    That's why they have to start appointing Republicans! Wonder if they can yank the Treasury Secretary out of there.
