Tax cheat Timothy Giethner, the man President Obama selected as his Secretary of Treasury, is having a bugger of a time selling his home in New York.

As one investigative journalist from Comedy Central's The Daily Show put it, "hiring Timoth Geithner to fix the economy is like hiring a personal trainer that is morbidly obese."

Geithner's realestate agent explain's why he is having a bit of difficulty selling his home:

The house was put on the market this past Frebruary and he priced it way too high. And he didn't want to take a price reduction.

So, early this month when signs began to show that the realestate market was turning around Sec. Geithner came up with a brilliant plan to sell his currently over priced home... raise the price.
