At least he paid his taxes

Finally, an Obama appointee paid his taxes!

Then again . .

"Auto task-force head Rattner linked to probe . . . Steven Rattner, the leader of the Obama administration's auto task force, was one of the executives involved with payments under scrutiny in a probe of an alleged kickback scheme at New York state's pension fund, The Wall Street Journal reported late Thursday, citing a person familiar with the matter. A Securities and Exchange Commission complaint says a "senior executive" of Rattner's investment firm met with a politically connected consultant about a finder's fee, the report said. The firm subsequently received an investment from the state pension fund, then paid a $1.1 million fee, it cited the complaint as saying. The "senior executive," not named in the complaint, is actually Rattner himself . . . "

This ought to restore confidence in the auto sector.
