"Civic and legal duty" - that sounds important

The Feds are fixing to fix UBS for enabling US citizens to hold offshore accounts out of sight of the IRS. They want names:
“At a time when millions of Americans are losing their jobs, their homes and their health care, it is appalling that more than 50,000 of the wealthiest among us have actively sought to evade their civic and legal duty to pay taxes,” John A. DiCicco, acting assistant attorney general in the Justice Department’s tax division, said in a statement.
Here's a name - Geithner, capo di tutti capi at the IRS.

Update: Emanuel.
