NEW YORK CITY, NY - After withdrawing his nomination as the No. 2 official at Treasury, Wall Street lawyer H. Rodgin Cohen admitted to regularly paying taxes, using lawful deductions, and employing a U.S. citizen as a nanny. "Didn't they vet this guy?" asked one Treasury insider. "Clearly, Cohen's petty legalistic attitude was never in sync with Secretary Geithner." Cohen was realistic, "I knew I should've owed back taxes if I wanted this job. Sometime you just screw up."
