Taxpayers are chumps

Oh geez.  This is getting silly:

Nancy Killefer on Tuesday withdrew her nomination to become chief performance officer, a new post in President Obama’s administration, a White House spokesman told CNN.

Officials said privately the reason for the withdrawal was unspecified tax issues.

The withdrawal is an embarrassment to the White House, as the much-touted post was aimed at scrubbing the federal budget.

(Via Instapundit.)

Now that she’s withdrawing her name, I wonder if she’ll pay whatever she owes.  We’ll never know.

UPDATE: It seems the amount at issue in Killefer’s case is only about $300 ($950 with interest and penalties), much less than Geithner, Daschle, Rangel, Franken, etc.  (Via Volokh.)  I wonder why she was the first to take a fall.
