First, it was Tim Geithner, who was nonetheless approved for Treasury Secretary (with a little help from Republican eunuchs in the Senate). Now it's Tom Dashcle, or, as I've called him "Tom Dasshole. (Washington Post).
Thomas A. Daschle, nominated to be secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, did not pay more than $128,000 in taxes over three years, a revelation that poses a potential obstacle to his Senate confirmation.
The back taxes, along with $12,000 in interest and penalties, involved unreported consulting fees, questionable charitable contributions, and a car and driver provided by a private equity firm run by entrepreneur and longtime Democratic Party donor Leo J. Hindery Jr., according to a confidential draft report prepared by Senate Finance Committee staff.
...Because of an apparent clerical error by the equity firm, Daschle did not report more than $83,000 in consulting fees in 2007 and has not provided sufficient documentation relating to $15,000 in charitable contributions over three years, according to the panel's report. He and his wife, Linda, gave $276,000 in charitable contributions during the three-year period being studied by the panel, according to a Daschle aide.
Clerical error my ass! I find it funny how liberals tell the rest of us about "sacrifice" and how we need to "pay our fair share."
Using Joe "Plugs" Biden's definition, can I call Dasshole "unpatriotic?"
So when is Sandy Burglar going to receive a cabinet nomination?
