Here is another conflict of interest.  Tom Daschle, the former SD senator picked by  Obama to run the nation’s healthcare system, received $220,000 in speaking fees from health care groups with an interest in the work he would do once confirmed as health chief.

In addition, he joins Timothy Geithner who also failed to pay taxes.  Daschle, failed to pay taxes from monies earn from health care groups, such as the Health Industry Distributors Association.  

It is reported that Daschle for the Department of Health and Human Services job, failed to pay $128,203 in back taxes and $11,964 in interest.  Tax cheats can apply for high level postions within the democratic party.
