Another Tax Evader: Daschle withdraws, doesn’t want to be ‘distraction’

leave a comment »

Tom Daschle has withdrawn his name from nomination for the post of Health and Human Services secretary, USA TODAY’s David Jackson reports. That word comes directly from Daschle himself, via a statement the White House just released.

In that statement, the Democrat and former senate majority leader says he does not want to be “a distraction. The focus of Congress should be on the urgent business of moving the president’s economic agenda forward.”

Daschle’s nomination ran into trouble over the weekend when it was revealed that he had failed to pay taxes on the value of a car and driver he used for several years — errors that led to him paying about $140,000 in back taxes and interest.

We’ll have more in a moment.
