The Senate voted 60-34 tonight to confirm tax-cheat Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary. He was head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, but was working for the International Monetary Fund when he had his tax troubles. The whole deal was about $34,000 dollars in back taxes that he paid late. He said it was an oversight. A simple mistake.
Mary Landrieu voted to confirm.
I'll remember that when it's time to vote against Mary.
