Nancy Killefer, President Obama’s nominee to chief performance officer for the federal government has withdrawn her nomination:

When her selection was announced by President Barack Obama on Jan. 7, The Associated Press disclosed that in 2005 the District of Columbia government had filed a more than $900 tax lien on her home for failure to pay unemployment compensation tax on household help.

So after fighting hard for male tax cheat Geithner, and while continuing to battle hard for the male tax cheat Daschle, Obama throws the female tax cheat under the bus.
