The government quackery that will soon be making all of us give detailed personal financial and tax information to make a simple gold purchase (so the government can both discourage the flight of the peasantry into gold, punish a Glen Beck advertiser, and allow the government to find the gold hoarders when FDR is resurrected when Obama's new recession kills federal revenues) is government bureaucratic quackery that catches EVERYONE. Your average federal employee can't hire Geitner's team of accountants, you know.
I'm not overly concerned that some low level flunkies or middle managers owe some taxes here and there. I've misjudged things and owed the government the occasional thousand or two. That study citing how government workers owed so muc money in taxes is meaningless unless the numbers are connected to names and positions and amount owed, and compared with a similar slice of the privately employed population in the same geographic area. It was a peice clearly intended to inflame, not inform.
But....the president of a Federal Reserve Bank doesn't have the least excuse for not paying his taxes in full and on time, just like the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committtee is expected to pay his damn taxes on time and in full.
