    August 2008:
    Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius is on the short list as a potential Obama running mate. The media is speculating about her credentials and what her plusses to an Obama campaign. The obvious is she's a woman, and so very many believe that will help pacify the fractured Democratic party, suffering the seemingly endless battle between Hillary Clinton supporters and Obama supporters. She's also a popular democratic governor in a traditionally Republican state, and is often cited as a potential candidate in future elections

    March 2009:
    As reported by the AP, Governor Sebelius Sebelius is the latest of the President Obama cabonet nominees with tax troubles, and had just paid $7,000 in back taxes.


    How many does this make now? Wouldn't you think that someone who was on "the short list" as a VP prospect would have already been vetted? Is this an example of judgment, listening, learning?

    "We Don't Care to Discuss It." "We levy and collect taxes, we don't pay em."

    Seriously though. Can none of these fuckers find an H&R Block. Jesus Christ, there is a Jackson-Hewitt in every Wal-Mart these days. There is slew of computer programs that will pretty much do the damn things for you. There is no excuse for the kind "miscalculations" that these shit stains have come up with. Hell, Geithner owed 25 grand. How the hell do you make that kind of "miscalculation." If a Republican pulled this shit while being appointed to a Cabinet Post he would be in federal prison faster than you could say soap on a rope.

    If a repub did it during the last admin, you'd never know it... or they'd be saying that the dems were "whining" when it was raised.

    come on, you know that.

    that said, they're all ijits.
