41 Obama employees owe over $20K in back taxes

Federal Employees owe
in back taxes.

The LA Times writes.....Privacy laws prevent release of individual tax delinquent’s names. But we do know that as of the end of 2009, 41 people inside Obama’s very own White House owe the government they’re allegedly running a total of $831,055 in back taxes. That would cover a lot of special chocolate desserts in the White House Mess.

The Washington Post writes.... Capitol Hill employees owed $9.3 million in overdue taxes at the end of last year, a sliver of the $1 billion owed by federal workers nationwide but one with potential political ramifications for members of Congress.

Shouldn't that be cause for disqualification for employment?
Shouldn't it be cause for termination if a determination is made that it was willful?
