Daschle's Tax Troubles

Looks like Tim Geithner isn't the only Washington powerhouse in debt to Uncle Sam: Politico reports that former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle—currently nominated to head Obama's Department of Health and Human Services—owes the IRS more than $128,000 in back taxes over the past three years. Most of that money is owed on a car and driver that were loaned to Daschle, for free, by a friend and Democratic fundraiser. A source tells Politico that Daschle does not plan to end his nomination.
