Tax question: could someone explain this to me?

Why is “Joe the Plumber” evil for owing approximately $1,200 in back taxes while Timothy Geithner, President Barack Obama’s choice to be the next Secretary of the Treasury, had about $34,000 in unpaid taxes, will probably receive confirmation to the position?

Geithner calls it a “careless mistake”, but I don’t see why we should entrust our nation’s financial matters to a man who ostensibly didn’t bother to correct this problem until he saw it could become an issue.
