Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, President Barack Obamas choice to head HHS and usher in a massive overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system, provided federal lawmakers with additional details on roughly $8,000 in back taxes and interest paid by her and her husband, Gary. In a written response to members of the Senate Finance Committee, Sebelius said that as governor, she incurred expenses for staff and business lunches and dinners, and for travel for business meetings that were related to my occupation but not necessarily related to my duties as governor. The couple also removed deductions previously filed for a home computer, a newspaper subscription, club dues and a personal trip, the governor said.
