Puzder Withdraws as Nominee for Secretary of Labor

This just in: Andrew Puzder has withdrawn his name from consideration as Secretary of Labor.  It sounds like the writing on the wall showed that he lacked enough Republican support in the Senate. It's interesting that this is the one cabinet nominee that failed. Allegations of domestic abuse was probably a factor, but his hiring of an undocumented domestic worker (and failure to pay her taxes) seemed to play a role for conservatives as well.
