I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Another Obama Nominee With Tax Problems

This time, it’s Ron Kirk, who has been nominated to be U.S. Trade Representative:

Former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk, who is President Obama’s nominee to be the U.S. trade representative, failed to pay almost $10,000 in taxes during the past three years because of a series of mistakes, the Senate Finance Committee said yesterday.

Kirk’s errors involved honoraria from speeches, on which he should have paid taxes; the cost of sports games, for which he deducted too much; and improper treatment of accounting fees on his income taxes. Kirk has agreed to file amended returns.

What is it with these people ?
