Senate Panel Confirms Geithner

No shocker here.

Despite some reservations from a small minority of Republicans, the Senate Finance Committee voted this morning to approve Tim Geithner to head the Treasury Department. The vote was 18 to 5, The Page reports. Geithner’s nomination now goes to the full Senate for a confirmation vote.

Seems that skipping thousands of dollars in tax payments is no impediment to higher office, even if you’ll oversee the IRS.
