They won't have to look very far in order to find some

"Turbo-Tax" Tim Geithner is now getting on his high horse and warning tax cheats that the government is coming after them:

"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who was forced to fork up $34,000 in unpaid back taxes, told the House Ways and Means Committee Tuesday that the Obama administration will be going after people who avoid and evade taxes."

Go peddle your wares somewhere else, sir. You failed to pay tens of thousands of dollars in taxes after you were specifically (and repeatedly) warned in letters from your previous employer (the International Monetary Fund) about your obligations, and were even given additional funds to reimburse you for your tax payment, yet you still willfully ignored your tax bill.

In what universe do you possibly have any moral authority to crack down on others who are simply following in your footsteps?
