If it weren't so pathetic, it would be comical.
Now Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas and U.S Health and Human Services nominee, has had to pay back taxes of more than $7,000. The errors were discovered by an accountant she hired to scrub her taxes in preparation for her confirmation hearings. Funny how she didn't scrub her taxes before she filed her returns.
One of the most perturbing aspects of all the tax cheats being nominated and confirmed is that these cheaters are the very same people--Democrats--who want to raise taxes on other people. Yet they can't be bothered to pay the taxes that they owe themselves.
On a personal note, I find it double perturbing that after paying many thousands of dollars in taxes to the state of Kansas, I received the following letter from this wonderful state government, headed by a tax cheat. (Click the pic for a larger view.)
She doesn't pay $7,000 in taxes she owes, but she'll come after people with threatening letters who owe $22.
