People have been wondering when Tim Geithner would leave Treasury almost since he started the job in the middle of a horrible financial crisis.

And with that, speculation of who will replace him is inevitable.
The "grown up" at Facebook is said to be on the short-list.

Am I the only FReeper still using a RED “TAX CHEAT” stamp on currency with Tim’s signature on it?

Jon Corzine is available as well. That should conclude the nominations for the replacement Sec. of Treasury Theft.

The scary thing is this — HE WAS SERIOUSLY BEING CONSIDERED FOR THE JOB AT ONE TIME. That was prior to the whole MF Global fiasco.
The Federal country club “prisons” are chock full of other tax cheaters. Pick any one,
The way I look at it, we should take account of which company employs these idiots, and boycott them.
