Labor Sec Nom's Husband Can't Pay His Taxes Either

Husband More of an Embarrassment Than Bill Clinton

Hilda Solis, the California union-lobbyist shill, up for nomination in Obama's cabinet seems to be having tax troubles as well. From USA Today:
The husband of President Obama's Labor secretary nominee 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 told USA TODAY this afternoon.

The disclosure came shortly before a scheduled 2 p.m. meeting of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which will vote on Rep. Hilda Solis' nomination as labor secretary. The hearing was postponed; no reason was immediately revealed.
The Solis family is claiming they didn't know about the liens against their business holdings when the media came asking, despite the fact that the liens were mailed to the husband's business address. Somehow I think the axiom of "stand by your man" is going to go under the proverbial bus in the very near future if Solis wishes to continue her political career.
