Obama nominees withdraw over tax issues

Two of Obama's portfolio nominees withdraw themselves as candidates citing personal tax issues

Barack Obama’s nominee for secretary of health and human services, Tom
Daschle, and the nominee for chief performance officer, Nancy Killefer, have
withdrawn their nominations for the posts.

Personal tax issues have been identified as the basis for the decisions,
according to
cfo.com

Both Daschle and Killefer released statements addressing the decision, saying
personal tax issues would detract from Obama’s agenda. The president accepted
both nomination withdrawals.

Robert Gibbs, White House press secretary, said ‘you can’t set an example of
responsibility but accept a different standard.’
