The tax-dodging Treasury Secretary saga

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 14, 2009 01:12 PM

The next act in Obama’s Treasury Secretary drama has been set for Jan. 21 at the request of Sen. Jon Kyl. The rescheduling wasn’t related to the tax-dodging disclosures.

Looks like Sen. Kyl is on the fence:

A Senate hearing to confirm Timothy Geithner as U.S. Treasury secretary has been delayed until Jan. 21 after a Republican senator said he had a schedule conflict.

Republican Jon Kyl of Arizona, a member of the Senate Finance Committee which confirms the Treasury secretary, objected to the scheduled hearing date of Jan. 16, Kyl’s spokesman, Ryan Patmintra, said in an interview. Kyl, also a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is scheduled to attend a confirmation hearing for Attorney General-designee Eric Holder tomorrow, Patmintra said.

…Kyl hasn’t decided how he’ll vote on the nomination after Geithner told panel members yesterday that he paid almost $50,000 in back taxes and interest to the Internal Revenue Service.

Will he buy the “honest mistake” alibi?

You can contact Kyl through his Twitter page here.

Meantime, Rush Limbaugh reminds listeners that Joe Biden told us paying higher taxes is patriotic. What does that make tax-dodger Geithner?
