Vitter Calls Appointment “Unprecedented” and “Troubling”

Official U.S. Senate photo

Louisiana’s junior U-S Senator has some harsh words for the President. U-S Senator David Vitter calls a White House announcement today “an unprecedented move” and “pretty troubling.” The White House has announced that President Obama would use a recess appointment to name Richard Cordray as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — the “credit czar,” if you will. Vitter says no president from either party in recent memory has made a recess appointment when Congress is not truly in recess — until today. He says Mr. Obama has violated the long-standing procedure for recess appointments to force through his nomination — even though the Senate voted against it last month.
