If its an Obama Nominee, It Must be Another Tax Cheat … This Time Kathleen Sebelius, Nominee for Health and Human Services Sec


It is deja vu all over again … another Obama nominee with a tax issue.

Another Barack Obama political nominee to his cabinet has tax issues, this is starting to Taxessound like a broken record. This time it is Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s nominee to become Health and Human Services secretary. Is it unbelievable or inevitable that this would occur with an Obama nominee? Over $7800 due.

Kathleen Sebelius, President Obama’s nominee to become Health and Human Services secretary, said in a letter obtained by the Associated Press that she made “unintentional errors” on her taxes and has corrected her returns from three different years.

In the letter, which was sent to senators and dated today, Sebelius wrote that she had made changes related to charitable contributions, business expenses and the sale of a home, according to the AP.

The wire service reports that she and her husband paid just over $7,000 in back taxes, along with $878 in interest, for the years 2005-2007.

According to Kathleen Sebelius, an accountant who was hired to review tax returns for 2005, 2006, and 2007, in preparation of her confirmation hearing, discovered a number of errors.

Great exit question from Allahpundit at Hot Air:

Why didn’t a CPA at least catch the error on mortgage interest when the returns were originally prepared? Or do we have another implausible case here, a la Geithner, of a public official — the governor of Kansas, in this case — using Turbo Tax or something to do her own returns? Don’t politicians use accountants anymore?

Michelle Malkin writes, Another day, another Obama nominee with tax problems. Blame it on “unintentional” errors, meaningless goofs. Hell, Blame it on the Rain or Blame it on Rio.”

Two questions really need to be asked with regards to this constant issue of Democratic Obama nominees with tax issues. One, What Is Wrong With The Democrats that they can’t afford a CPA? Two, if the best and brightest among us, the very people who write the laws cannot follow them … how is John Q. Public?

Why are these politicians looked upon as making an innocent mistake or “unintentional errors” while the general public would be treated much differently by the IRS. Yea, no double standard there.

      gotto love the politicians

      So that is where they get the money
      to fund their evil campaign to take
      over this country.

      They just don’t pay their taxes!

      Think of all that money Senator Barney Faggot
      has squirrelled away for all of those little
      midnight homo Tickle Me Elmo parties.

      i’ve been daydreaming all day over the thought of obama and 500 of his merry marauders being across the pond for a week. is that long enough for us to have all of their passports revoked and make them stay over there? then they’d all be in the socialist countries they want us to emulate and we can repair the damage they’ve done in the last 2 months and return to the republic our fathers and forefathers and brothers and friends paid the ultimate price to protect.

      mccain/palin looks better every day to me.

    8. ANewGirl on April 1st, 2009 11:22 pm

      @#7- Dennis…you know what?? He may have not been the best Rep Candidate ever to have run—but to this day- John McCain is still holding true to his nickname of the “Maverick” and givin’ them hell in Congress.

      McCain’s experience, candor, intelligence & loyalty to his Country are just a few of his positive traits that remain unwavering. He’s tough, and if anyone had the guts & intestinal fortitude to face our Nation’s challenging times right now…no doubt John McCain could have gotten the job done. Palin was crucified by the MSM, such a shame for a young woman with so much to offer…you betcha!

      Obama’s INEXPERIENCE continues to shine through along with his inability to properly and thoroughly vet (some) of his cabinet choices. It’s beyond ridiculous.

      One last gripe–If I have to look at Michelle Obama on the cover of one more Fashion or Woman’s magazine, I think I am going to toss my cookies! Enough already! While she does have a great sense of style- I fail to see how this is an important contribution to society.

    9. Dolf on April 2nd, 2009 3:25 am

      mcCain could have had my vote.

      but he lost as soon as he started to use the Karl Rove tactics

      Newgirl, blame the magazines not mrs Obama

    10. Carpe on April 2nd, 2009 7:55 am


      Forgive me if I’m wrong… but you aren’t an American citizen, correct?

      You cannot vote for anyone in the USA, if that is the case.

      You can only run for President!

    11. scott on April 2nd, 2009 12:02 pm

      You don’t know even what Karl Rove tactics are? Stop listening the MSLSD morons.

      Can’t you form an opinion of your own besides stealing liberal trash from liberal trash?

    12. Rusty Bridges on April 2nd, 2009 1:28 pm

      just out of curiosity, what is the longest it ever took for a pres. to put a cabinet together?

      Do you think O will get it done in his first year?

      Maybe if he actually went to work when he was a senator he might know some of these peoples credibilty.

    13. Dolf on April 3rd, 2009 1:36 am


      think i’ll skip that job, can’t do anything right.

      scott, you would fit in nicely with Rove, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz and Cheney.

    14. scott on April 3rd, 2009 10:56 am

      Dolf – where do you fit in? In your momma’s basement?

    15. Brenda in Virginia on April 3rd, 2009 11:59 am

      Scott…LOL…that was good!

    16. Michelle Smith on April 3rd, 2009 12:48 pm

      I’m still trying to figure out why Dolf is still posting on this site, last time I checked he wasn’t even an American. I don’t see what he could possibly have to contribute to the conversation.

    17. ANewGirl on April 6th, 2009 12:05 am

      Scott, LOL

      @ Dolf—-Perhaps when you come out of your Mom’s basement today, you can use the Lunch Money she gave you to go BUY YOURSELF A CLUE.

      For real, you seem to have much to say about a Country you are not even a legal Citizen of so why don’y you just zip it and let us all rant and rave freely without injecting your lousy, liberal 2 cents worth? Do you live and work here in the US? I wonder what relative or friend of mine you have replaced in the work force? Do you, have you or will you ever be an AMERICAN Citizen? If and when that time comes, someone on this website might actually give a sh*t what you have to say.

    18. Dolf on April 6th, 2009 2:00 am

      without class as well.

      ah…if you still wondering why Americans are such a target for lunnie’s

      its because of ppl like you.

      a new terrorist attack will be on your heads

    19. Dolf on April 7th, 2009 1:54 am

      btw. that basement thing in europe has some nasty ring to it, Dutroux, Fritz, Kamphus

      all with child rapists held in basements for years.
