RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Timothy Geithner

He does look somewhat creepy

Timothy Franz "Great Gazoo" Geithner (b. 1961) is politician and economist and from 2009 until 2013 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.[1] He later paid them, plus $15,000 in interest. [2]

AIG scandal[edit]

Geithner is said to have urged AIGWikipedia to conceal certain terms of the company's bailout from the public.[3]
