Ron Kirk, nominated as U.S. Trade Representative in the Obama administration, owes an estimated $10,000 in back taxes from earlier in the decade and has agreed to make his payments, the Senate Finance Committee said Monday.
Despite the error, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, issued a statement calling Kirk "the right person for this job," and said he would attempt to have the nomination moved through the panel quickly.
That's really good heather...you found ONE person who is NOT in the obama, I-am-going-to -be-a-different-type-of -politician's cabinet. The irony and the disgust comes from what OBAMA said HE was going to be, a different kind of politicion but HE keeps putting people in HIS cabinet who are crooked!. Bringing other people (Bush, Chaney, Palin..whoever else ya got) doesn't change that fact that Obama said HE would be different and HE isn't.
