Another nominee, another tax scofflaw

This time, it’s former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk, Obama’s nominee for Trade Representative.

The Senate Finance Committee on Monday revealed that President Barack Obama’s nominee for U.S. Trade Representative, Ron Kirk, had failed to pay $10,000 in taxes over the span of three years beginning in 2005. The panel report comes after several other nominees faced controversy over tax issues.

Kirk, a former Dallas mayor, failed to report as income $37,750 in honoraria collected for 16 speaking engagements at Austin College, his alma mater, for 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. He also deducted NBA Mavericks tickets worth $17,382 as entertainment expenses in 2006, 2006 and 2007, but has substantiated only $9,900 of the expenses.

What is it with these people?
Why can’t Obama  find some law-abiding people to serve in his administration?
How many is this now?  I’ve lost count.  But, maybe that’s the point.  The shock value of the President hiring tax cheaters has diminished with each passing revelation.
Shame.
