Now it’s Rep. Solis’ turn — family business cheats on taxes

USA Today lead:

WASHINGTON — The husband of President Obama’s choice to head the Labor Department paid about $6,400 Wednesday to settle tax liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years against his business, the Obama administration said Thursday.

The disclosure came shortly before a scheduled 2 p.m. meeting of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which will vote on U.S. Rep. Hilda Solis’ nomination as Labor secretary. The hearing was postponed to give the administration time to look into the tax matter and report back to the committee, said Anthony Coley, a spokesman for Sen. Edward Kennedy, the committee chairman. Solis is a California Democrat.

Rest of the story here:  Husband of Rep. Solis, Labor nominee, settles tax liens.  Hilda Solis is an El Monte Democrat known for her support of the onerous Card Check bill (aka “Let’s Unionize Wal-Mart”).

Not an impressive job of vetting by the Messiah’s minions.
