Timothy Franz Geithner (b. 1961) is politician and economist and currently the Secretary of the Treasury under President Obama. He attended Dartmouth College and the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and served in the International Monetary Fund as well as the New York Federal Reserve Bank. Geithner played a key role in dealing with the financial crisis of the Great Recession and fell under the inevitable criticism of some conservatives as well as many liberals. Apparently Geithner had not paid $35,000 in taxes for the years 2001–2004. He later paid them, plus $15,000 in interest. 
 AIG scandal
The occupywallst.org website reports Geithner was detained for questioning and released by New York police in 2012 in connection with financial corruption investigations stemming from the Crash of 2008. Geithner is said to have urged AIG to conceal certain terms of the company's bailout from the public.
