The Rangel Rule can now be called Rangel-Daschle

Thomas A. Daschle, fighting to defend his nomination to be secretary of health and human services, released a letter early today apologizing to the top lawmakers on the Senate Finance Committee for mistakes on his personal income tax returns that resulted in $146,000 in back payments.

"I am deeply embarrassed and disappointed by the errors that required me to amend my tax returns," he wrote to Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). "I apologize for the errors and profoundly regret that you have had to devote time to them."

Change. Mmmmm.

UPDATE: Or perhaps the Rangel-Geithner-Daschle Rule.
