It looks like yet another Obama Treasury Department nominee has tax problems: Lael Brainerd, who is nominated to be Assistant Treasury Secretary for International Affairs.

The tax flubs include:

  • late payments on DC unemployment tax
  • hiring a possibly illegal alien
  • late property tax payments
  • improperly claiming a home office deduction

Once again, we see an Obama nominee (at Treasury, no less) not paying her taxes.  This is the same crowd who wants to raise our taxes by hundreds of billions per year.
