If Obama Treasury Secretary nominee Timothy Geithner is so smart, why was he so dumb in handling his own taxes? Or perhaps he wasn’t so dumb. Perhaps he thought he could get away with not paying his taxes. Either way, how is he fit to be Treasury Secretary, with jurisdiction over the IRS?
These are among the questions that still beg for answers after Geithner, President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, spent a few hours on Wednesday at a confirmation hearing before the Senate Finance Committee.
But don’t expect the media to try to get any definitive answers by demanding that Geithner return for more grilling.
