Oh no, not another one

This time it's employment taxes. We should dub this affliction "NTPSS" or Nominee Tax Paying Scrutiny Syndrome. This time it is Nancy Killefer, whom Obama had tagged to become the first Chief Performance Officer. The Washington Post reports...

"But today the 55-year-old Killefer announced she was withdrawing her candidacy today, amid questions about her failure to pay employment taxes for household help for about 18 months, The Associated Press reported. In 2005, the District of Columbia filed a $946.69 tax lien on Killefer's $1.7 million home in the affluent Wesley Heights neighborhood of Northwest Washington "for failure to pay the unemployment compensation tax."

Here is a copy of her letter to President Obama.
