President to Nominate Cordray (again) to Lead CFPB

President Obama will re-nominate former Ohio AG Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, according to WaPo.  Cordray is currently serving in that role as a recess appointee.

Recall that President Obama recess-appointed Cordray just over a year ago after Republicans made clear that they wouldn't confirm him.  Republicans objected to both the CFPB and to Cordray.  We posted on substantive objections herewe posted on procedural and constitutional objections here.

Cordray's nomination and another nomination expected today, former federal prosecutor Mary Jo White to head the SEC, are seen as part of the administration's drive to more tightly regulate financial markets.  They promise to (again) create a stir in Congress.
