Another Obama Nominee Runs into Tax Problems

Obama's Sect'y of the Treasury Timothy Geithner's tax evasion was the stuff of headlines earlier this year - as were failed nominee for Sect'y of Health and Human Services, Tom Daschle(D).

Now comes another 'unpatriotic' democrat.

"Obama’s nominee for undersecretary of the Treasury for international affairs, Lael Brainard, is the fifth presidential nominee to reveal tax issues during the congressional vetting process.

Brainard was late in paying real estate taxes in 2005, 2006 and 2007 on property in Northern Virginia, according to the report by the Senate Finance Committee staff.

The report also challenges the accuracy of a deduction Brainard claimed for running an office from her home.
The challenge led Brainard to reduce the deduction on her 2008 return, though she declined to adjust returns for 2005, 2006 and 2007, telling committee staff she used a reasonable method to calculate the deductions.

Brainard is current in all her taxes, said Treasury spokesman Andrew Williams."

Tsk, tsk. If these people can't be faithful in the little things (like paying their own property taxes), how on earth can we expect them to be faithful in the international monetary system?

And ever wonder why these so-called progressives - like the ones Pres. Obama tries to pack into his inner circle - have such a hard time paying their fair share, but no problems spending other people's money?
