Another Treasury Pick Backs Out
Another nominee for Pbama's Treasury Department has backed out of the job process. From the WaPo:
[H. Rodgin Cohen], a prominent attorney who has advised many of the top Wall Street firms, [has] dropped out after the White House found an issue during his vetting process, two sources familiar with the matter said. The sources declined to identify the reason. Cohen did not respond to messages seeking comment.
Others who removed themselves from consideration in recent weeks include Annette Nazareth, an attorney who was being considered for the deputy post; Lee Sachs, a former Treasury official in the Clinton administration, who was expected to be the under secretary for domestic finance; and International Monetary Fund official Caroline Atkinson, who was in line for under secretary for international affairs.
