Pryor pressure

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2007 at 2:15 PM

Michael Baroody, the manufacturers' lobbyist who Bush had nominated to head, of all things, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has withdrawn his name from consideration. The report is that his withdrawal follows almost immediately after a session with Sen. Mark Pryor at which Pryor gave him a taste of the questions he'd likely encounter at his confirmation hearing. The administration, of course, thinks senators "rushed to judge" Baroody, who you can be sure would have been a fierce advocate for consumers. Uh huh.
