ABC News has learned that later today, President Obama's nominee to be chief performance officer, Nancy Killefer, will withdraw her nomination following the revelation that she has a lien on her property for failure to pay taxes.
Obama nominated Killifer on Jan. 7, calling her "uniquely qualified" for the job. "When Nancy was offered her first position at Treasury, she responded, and I quote, 'If you are willing to embrace significant change, then you're looking at the right person. But if you just want to keep the trains running on time, don't ask me to do this job.' When I heard that, I knew I'd chosen exactly the right person for the challenges we face."
