Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus said the confirmation hearing for Timothy F. Geithner would be held by next Wednesday, but added that the delay does not signal that Barack Obama's pick for treasury secretary is in jeopardy.
"He'll clearly get confirmed -- that's a given," Baucus told reporters this morning.
Geithner met with committee members yesterday to explain why he had made nearly $43,000 worth of mistakes on recent federal tax returns. He told the panel that the errors were unintentional, committed while he was working for the International Monetary Fund, which follows a different tax regime than U.S. companies.
