WASHINGTON — The husband of President Obama's Labor secretary nominee paid about $6,400 Wednesday to settle tax liens that had been outstanding for as long as 16 years against his business, the Obama administration told USA TODAY this afternoon
15 different tax liens were filed against Solis's husband.
Solis has also been under fire for failing to disclose her role as Treasurer of a pro-labor lobby group, American Rights at Work. As a member of Congress, Solis sponsored a key piece of legislation the group supported, The Employee Free Choice Act, which would dramatically increase labor's influence in the workplace.
