The Senate confirmed President Obama’s secretary of the Treasury, Tim Geithner, for his current job despite a flap over Mr. Geithner’s employment of an illegal housekeeper. When Geithner hired the woman to clean his home in 2004 she had immigration papers that allowed her to work. Those expired while she was in Geithner’s employ, however. She worked illegally for three months before obtaining a green card allowing her to stay in the country.
