Tax dodger named Treasury Sec
Josh Marshall has posted the following press release from the Citizens for Tax Justice (file is a PDF). In short, Bush's second underwhelming choice for Treasury Secretary in a row, John Snow, is a genius at avoiding taxes.
John W. Snow, President Bush’s apparent choice to replace the fired Paul O’Neill as Secretary of the Treasury, is the CEO of a champion corporate tax dodger.Is this the message that the administration wanted to send the American people with this decision? The word "hubris" has been bantered around quite a bit the past few days, mostly within the context of the Louisiana election. But this fits the bill nicely as well. Considering the stink over provisions in the Homeland Security Department allowing off-shore tax cheats to feed from the public trough, this decision is especially galling.
