Crimes & Fraud: More Tax Problems In Obama’s Cabinet- This Time It’s Tom Daschle

leave a comment »

Do you remember that enormous questionnaire Barack Obama made all of his potential staffers fill out? Obviously it had a gaping hole where the DID YOU PAY YOUR INCOME TAXES question should have been. First there was Geithner, now in charge of the IRS. Now, the AP is reporting it’s Tom Daschle.

Former Sen. Daschle was picked by Obama to lead his health reform efforts. He recently filed amended tax returns to report $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest, according to a Senate document obtained by the AP.

The White House acknowledged Friday that “some tax issues” had emerged in connection with the nomination, but a spokesman said the president is confident the former Senate Democratic leader will be confirmed as the new health secretary. Of course he will be! If Geithner, who is now in charge of the Treasury department can skate on taxes, surely a former Senator and full-time Democrat sycophant like Daschle can get through.

So, was it a one-time goof? Hell no. You already knew the answer to that one. Daschle filed amended tax returns for 2005, 2006 and 2007 to reflect additional income for consulting work, the use of a car service and reduced deductions for charitable contributions. He filed the returns after Obama announced he intended to nominate him to head the Health and Human Services Department. I wonder how many MORE of these rush-rush late tax return filers there are up in Kool’s gang………
