Glitch Pickings.

By Mr Smith's reckoning that is no fewer than three senior cabinet appointments which President Obama has not been able to get through on the basis that his appointees has dodgy tax records and have been forced to withdraw.

"US President Barack Obama has said "I screwed up" over his handling of a controversy that led two politicians to decline posts in his administration. Tom Daschle was to become the new secretary of health, and Nancy Killefer was Mr Obama's choice to oversee budget and spending reform. They both withdrew when questions were raised about their tax affairs."

Why is it so many US politicians seem to have problems paying their taxes on time?
