Another Tax Cheat Nominee

This is getting old.  How many is it now?  Four?

It seems yet another would-be member of the Obama administration accidentally forgot to pay taxes.   It was revealed today that the husband of Secretary of Labor nominee Rep. Hilda Solis had 15 outstanding state and county tax liens totaling $7,630 against his automobile  business, some of them dating back over 16 years.

White House Spokesman Robert  Gibbs had this to say:. 
"The White House believes that if you owe taxes you should pay them." Robert Gibbs

I certainly hope that they do.

The couple is claiming ignorance of the outstanding liens.  

While I have little specific knowledge of the tax lien process in California, this doesn't pass the smell test.  Liens aren't usually imposed until there have been a series of notices asking for payment.  In addition, in our age of computerization the existence of unpaid taxes often effects an owner's ability to keep the business completely legitimate. That's because city, county and state agencies now readily share information about the unpaid taxes and may refuse to renew many licenses and certifications until shown proof that all applicable taxes have been paid.

During the Obama campaign, he promised not to include lobbyists in his adminsitration.  (A promise which he broke, but that's beside the point, at the moment.)  What he didn't tell us was that he would make as a requirement that anyone in his administration MUST be a tax cheat.  All this is very ironic, given that all the rest of us simple folk are going to be stuck with mammoth tax bills for years to come because of the Obama Porkulus Spending Package.
