Sebelius becomes latest Obama Cabinet pick with tax troubles

"Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday joined a list of Cabinet nominees who were forced to pay back taxes because of errors in their returns.

In a letter to the Senate Finance Committee, Sebelius, President Barack Obama's nominee to head the Health and Human Services Department, said she repaid nearly $8,000, including interest, because of "unintentional errors.""

If only Leona Helmsley were still alive. ("We don't pay taxes. Only the little people pay taxes . . .") Surely, there'd be a job for her in this administration.
