Another one bites the dust

WASHINGTON (AP) - Nancy Killefer, who failed for a year and a half to pay employment taxes on household help, has withdrawn her candidacy to be the first chief performance officer for the federal government, the White House said Tuesday.

Killefer was the second major Obama administration nominee to withdraw and the third to have tax problems complicate their nomination after President Barack Obama announced their selection.

Democrat administrations are always going to have these problems because leftists think that the rules should apply to everyone except themselves. You see they're special because they care so much and they're so smart and they work so hard to grow government and limit average people's personal liberty (because ordinary people in flyover country really can't be trusted to make the proper decisions on their own).
