Obama's Pick for State Department Post Failed to File Her 2005 & 2006 Tax Returns; She Blames Her husband and the Post Office
Obama's Pick for State Department Post Failed to File Her 2005 & 2006 Tax Returns; She Blames Her Cardiologist Husband and the Post Office
The New York Times reports that President Obama’s choice as Chief of Protocol for the State Department, Capricia Penavic Marshall (J.D. 1990, Case Western), and her cardiologist husband, failed to file their 2005 and 2006 tax returns. She balmed the problem "on the Postal Service and on miscommunication between her husband and their accountant":
Ms. Marshall, who was the social secretary in the Clinton White House, notified the Obama administration about the late filings before she was nominated on May 14. She has since provided written answers to questions about the matter from Senator Richard G. Lugar of Indiana, the top Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, which will hold a hearing on the appointment next Wednesday. The post requires Senate confirmation. ...
Ms. Marshall may fare better because, after ultimately filing the 2005 and 2006 federal and local paperwork, she was entitled to $37,259 in refunds, according to data she provided to Mr. Lugar. ... An aide to Mrs. Clinton, Philippe Reines, said, “In the end, only two American taxpayers were adversely impacted by this inadvertent lapse.”
In her written answers and in accounts she gave to government officials, Ms. Marshall has said the errors were unintentional. She has said that her husband failed to recognize that the couple’s accountant had included the tax returns for 2005 in a binder he provided with copies of the returns, and that the actual paperwork was never mailed.
The couple learned something was awry, Ms. Marshall has said, when the IRS notified them last fall that their 2006 return had never arrived. She wrote that an agent “advised us that there were a large number of tax returns misplaced by the D.C. post office for the 2006 tax year.”

blaming the post office is a classic move for shitheads.
every asshole i issue citations to for driving on a suspended license, or lock up for fta says the same thing. "it must be the post office's fault. i never got my notice in the mail." boo-fucking-hoo. grow up and take responsibility for yourself. you screwed up, deal with it.in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

Isn't failing to file income tax returns a requirement for employment in the Obama Administration? If he could get enough of his people to file returns , he would have enough money to impliment his socialized health care.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Now, if he was going to appoint someone WITH OUT TAX OR NANNY PROBLEMS, that would be big news

If she was actually due a refund, that helps make her excuse much more plausible than the other tax delinquents Obama has appointed... I think they all owed tens of thousands of dollars to the IRS.
Still, it doesn't help her case for being the best & brightest for the job, though. I think I would have missed a $37,000 refund.
