Daschle Withdraws, As Does Killefer
Tom Daschle, plagued by questions about his failure to pay taxes on a car and driver that an equity firm provided for his use, has withdrawn his nomination as Secretary of Health and Human Services. That decision renders moot this discussion by five tax experts about whether Daschle's erroneous tax filings should have prevented his confirmation (consensus answer: no).
Nancy Killefer announced earlier today that she would not serve as chief performance officer because of her own tax issues.
Harvey the Bum, who hasn't worked and therefore hasn't had to file tax returns for the last decade, remains available for a White House appointment.
