According to a member of the transition team that oversaw recruitment and initial vetting for undersecretary and deputy undersecretary positions at the Treasury Department, the Obama White House is attempting to slip "at least two" nominees through the process who have "serious tax issues."
"The White House is trying to get the issues settled ASAP with the tax authorities, and to keep it quiet, if they can," says the source. "We tried nixing these candidates, but they keep coming back on us."
At least one of the nominees would have a hand in setting U.S. tax policy, said the source.
